Next, the arduous task of proving what belongs to who.

  • RM10 million worth of handbags and watches belong to daughter Nooryana Najwa’s mother-in-law Maira Nazarbayev
  • Some items belong to Cindy Tan, wife of Pavilion Residences’ owner Desmond Lim
  • Other items belong to Najwa and family, Najib’s son Mohd Ashman

Less than half the items seized from Pavilion Residences during a May police raid as part of 1MDB investigations belong to Rosmah Mansor, a source has said.

The source, who is close to the wife of former premier Najib Abdul Razak, claimed that there were items belonging to Nooryana Najwa’s mother-in-law Maira Nazarbayev, such as handbags and watches.

“She (Maira) kept some of her personal items at Najwa’s house. So some of the items that are now in the authorities’ possession belong to her. They are worth at least RM10 million. These items should be returned to her,” the source said.

The source added that other items seized in one of three apartment units raided belonged to Cindy Tan, the wife of Pavilion Residences’ owner Desmond Lim, and other individuals.

It was previously noted that certain boxes seized during the raid had been labelled “Datin Cindy” and also “Puan Sri Cindy”.

“The rest of items seized belong to Najwa and her family, as well as (Najib’s son Mohd) Ashman. These include computers, wedding gifts, and baby items. They have nothing to do with 1MDB,” said the source.
