Police search at Najib’s house passes 14-hour mark

After more than 14 hours since a vast police team descended last night onto the private residence of ousted prime minister Najib Abdul Razak in Jalan Langgak Duta, Kuala Lumpur, there seemed to be no end in sight with searches still ongoing.

Several police vehicles have been observed leaving the area. However, several others, including the Black Maria truck, remain parked out front as officers from Bukit Aman’s federal commercial crimes department are still believed to be combing through Najib’s house.

Among the vehicles observed leaving earlier in the day were a few unmarked police vehicles, containing individuals in hoodies. In one, a person in the passenger seat with his or her face covered could be seen.

The police team had arrived in more than a dozen cars at about 10.15pm last night, followed by the Black Maria, which is often used to transport detainees, at 3.50 this morning.

It was later learned that the truck is being used to transport evidence boxes.
