Police raid home of Malaysian ex-PM

Police raid home of Malaysian ex-PM

Former prime minister Najib Razak at a mosque for prayers, hours before police launched a search of his home which continued into the morning.

Dr Mahathir said he wanted to hear Abdul Gani's version of what had happened during the course of the investigation into 1MDB.

Since coming to power, Mahathir has removed the attorney general, who cleared Najib of offence, replaced head of the anti-corruption head and declassified an 1MDB financial report.

Amar Singh Ishar Singh, chief of the police commercial crimes unit, confirmed that five locations "belonging to and connected to" Najib were being targeted, The Star newspaper said. Police officials couldn't be immediately reached for comment.

Asked on axing of civil servants, the prime minister said senior government officials who had "done something wrong" would be sent on leave or suspended.

On Wednesday, Anwar called his release a victory for all Malaysians, regardless of race or religion, who stood by the principles of democracy and freedom.

Mahathir, 92, has said there is sufficient evidence to investigate the scandal at 1MDB.

"They searched the whole house, possibly looking for documents and things like that, but there was nothing there to be honest", Grewal said. Najib denies any wrongdoing.

The company previously enforced community standards by having users report violations and trained staff then deal with them. Compare that to the 95.8 percent of nudity or 99.5 percent of terrorist propaganda that Facebook purged automatically.

Mahathir said the government would seek to retrieve billions of dollars laundered from 1MDB to repay government debts that have piled up over the years.

"I think we need to let Mahathir do his work to save Malaysia and to get back its system of government". "For this, we will contact the governments of the countries to recover the money there", Mahathir said.

"The main issue is of corruption, particularly 1MDB as well as the money that was embezzled by the previous government", Mahathir told reporters on Wednesday. We will declare the money is ours and will apply for it to be released to us.

"They demand change and it is our duty now to ensure that this mandate given to Pakatan Harapan [political alliance] will honour this commitment", the politician added.

Freed PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said he would not make an immediate return to politics, but instead would give his full support to the new government led by Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Deputy Prime Minister-designate Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.

He said he hoped this week to have a 10-member cabinet before expanding it later but acknowledged that it was a challenge navigating his alliance.

"It is hard. It is time consuming and energy consuming and I don't get much sleep but I have to do it because they appointed me as prime minister".
