KUALA LUMPUR: The RM114 million cash seized in relation to 1Malaysia Development Bhd’s (1MDB) money laundering investigation is believed to be the biggest haul in the nation’s history.

The Federal Commercial Crime Department chief Datuk Seri Amar Singh Ishar Singh, replying to a question from the floor at Commercial Crime Investigation Department headquarters in Menara 238 Jalan Tun Razak today, admitted so far this was the biggest cash amount seized in the history of his service in the force for more than 30 years.

The third generation cop, after his father and grandfather (who served even before independence) said he had never seen a case with such magnitude of cash involved.

“No. No, I have never seen a case with so much money involved,” Amar said replying a question.

Among the questions put to him were also about his retirement which is due June 6.

Rumours are that he would be retained and have his service extended, at least until the 1MDB investigations were complete.

“That’s a question for the IGP not me.

” Yes, I got wind that my service would be extended but I have not got anything in black and white. Until and unless, I get the extension letter in my hand, I will not confirm anything,” Amar said.
