Former Prime Minister Najib Razak is possibly under an unofficial house arrest.
he could be cordoned there while the new government launches a new investigation on the 1MDB scandal.
There are no indications the ex-PM or his wife are within the compound.
Police began cordoning off the exit to and from the private residence of former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at Jalan Langgak Duta, Taman Duta Bernama said today.
Questiin is whether the ex-pm is under an unofficial house arrest?
However, it is certain the House is cordoned to prevent people and documents from leaving the compound.
Bernama said Deputy Sentul police chief Supt Mohamed Rafiq Mohamed Mustafa when contacted by Bernama, said policemen from the Sentul police station had been stationed there for security monitoring.
A check by Bernama there saw five policemen stationed at the entrance to Najib’s residence.
There was also a mobile police station and all vehicles and individuals passing the area said Bernama.
Sources said the cordon could also be part of the ongoing re-opening of the 1MDB case.
Newly minted PM Mahathir Mohamad said last week he has ordered the police to declassify the 1MDB report that was hidden under the Official Secrets Act or OSA.
Najib’s regime did not want to release the official version of the Attorney General’s office report on the 1MDB scandal, placing it under OSA.
“The police might just be doing the job of preventing documents from leaving the compound,” WFTV was told.
There are no indications how long the cordon will be there altogether.
