Malaysian police seized US$ 28.6 million in cash and more than 400 luxury handbags from several apartments on Friday as part of an anti-graft investigation of former prime minister Najib Razak, Reuters reported.
An investigation into the billions that went missing from state fund 1MDB during Najib’s presidency was reopened after he was ousted from office May 9. He has consistently denied wrongdoing but is banned from leaving the country.
In addition to Najib’s home, police searched the apartments of two of his children as well, the head of Malaysia’s commercial crime division Amar Singh told a news conference. Since May 18, a dozen properties connected to Najib have been inspected.
