A one-tonne lorry arrived and left 20 minutes later, and vehicles went out with police outriders.
A lorry was seen entering Najib Razak’s private residence on Langgak Duta, Taman Duta, as speculation mounted about the fate of the former prime minister.
The one-tonne lorry arrived at Najib’s house at 6.05pm and left 20 minutes later.
It is unsure what had been loaded unto the lorry, which was covered by a blue canvas.
A group of reporters and policemen had also gathered outside his house.
Prior to the lorry’s arrival, former Parti Cinta Malaysia (PCM) vice-president Huan Cheng Guan was seen exiting the house at 5.45pm.
“I spoke to him for about 30 minutes and I told him to be patient,” he told reporters, adding that neither issues related to Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Anwar Ibrahim were raised.
Earlier today, Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad said Najib was barred from leaving the country when asked if action would be taken against the latter over the 1MDB scandal.
Mahathir had also said yesterday that he was confident that Najib would be charged over the state investment arm.
Four days ago, police had cordoned off the exit to and from the private residence of the former BN chairman.
On Monday, Inspector-General of Police Mohamad Fuzi Harun said police had tightened security at the entrance of the road going to Najib’s residence in the federal capital as a security measure.
“There are actually two indications, one is fear for the security of the former prime minister and we are also monitoring certain parties.
“At the same time, we also want to ensure the security of the residence so that nothing untoward happens,” he said.
In the evening, several vehicles with police outriders were seen leaving the residence. It is not known who were in the vehicles. – FMT
