Malaysian police seized 284 boxes containing designer handbags and dozens of bags stuffed with cash and jewellery from a luxury condominium linked to former prime minister Najib Razak on the morning of May 18.
Amar Singh, head of the Malaysian police commercial crime investigation unit, said: "Our personnel checked these bags and discovered various currencies including Malaysian ringgit, US dollars, watches and jewellery in 72 bags." Their total value was not yet ascertained, he added. The seized handbags were of Hermes and Louis Vuitton brands.
Singh said the raids were related to an investigation into a multi-billion scandal involving the Najib-founded state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
