Allegedly, the police search is extending to other Najib-linked locations while a lawyer has criticised the ex-PM for insulting those who are truly jobless.
The eight safes found inside the prime minister’s official residence at Seri Perdana in Putrajaya were opened early yesterday by police investigating Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
It was reported that a source told Sinar Harian that the safes were opened by two locksmiths, but no items or monies were found in any of the eight.
According to the source, the operations began on Friday evening until 3am Saturday morning.
Apparently, police were also focusing their search on other locations in Putrajaya, Kuala Lumpur, and Kajang, but it is not known who are the owners of the premises to be searched.
Meanwhile, lawyer Syahredzan Johan pointed out to Najib today that he remains salaried as the Member of Parliament for Pekan, Pahang, where he is currently visiting.
Commenting on an aggregated report of the Malay Mail’s exclusive interview yesterday with Najib, he slammed the former PM’s claim of being jobless.
During the interview, Najib asserted that he was jobless when asked what his days were now like.
He also said he would occasionally give his views on the country’s direction, but said he needed time to “sort out [his] personal side first.”
“Datuk Seri still gets a salary as the Pekan MP. Please do not liken yourself to those who are truly jobless. That is insulting,” Syahredzan wrote on Twitter.
