* Najib and Rosmah claims son-in-law Daniyar Nazarbayev to be very rich
* Nephew of Kazakh president is ‘great success’ after ‘falsely worming his way into Columbia University’ and ‘stealing’ his stepfather’s $20million New York apartment
* Hidden luxury vehicles allegedly owned by Najib & family found in parking lot
* Lawyer tells how Najib and Rosmah can get back seized items  

Putrajaya and the police have filed two civil forfeiture suits against former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak, his wife Rosmah Mansor and several others to seize a total of RM711 million worth of luxury items, including 27 luxury cars and a property from these individuals.

The Edge reported that two notices of motion and supporting affidavits were filed in the High Court in Kuala Lumpur yesterday to seize the items, purportedly bought with money from state investment fund 1MDB.

Quoting sources, it said that the action was a follow-up to the seizure of the valuables last year at Najib-linked properties in several areas, including Bukit Bintang.

The first notice of motion filed yesterday was to seize a property in the Klang Valley, cash (in various foreign currencies), jewellery, handbags, watches and sunglasses worth RM680 million.

The second notice of motion is to seize RM31 million worth of items, including 27 luxury cars, cash (in various foreign currencies), 29 bank accounts, watches and bags.

It is learnt that one Supt Foo Wei Min, who headed the police’s Anti-Money Laundering Unit in the operations and investigations, affirmed an affidavit in support of the forfeiture action.

The unit was also assisted by the MACC.

The hearing of the application would take as long as a month, The Edge reported.

Yesterday, Attorney-General Tommy Thomas confirmed that Malaysia has received US$57 million (RM236 million) from the US, which was forfeited from Red Granite Pictures after it was accused of financing films using funds allegedly stolen from 1MDB.

In March, the then inspector-general of police, Mohamad Fuzi Harun, stressed that the investigations into the seized items must be completed on or before May 16.

This is because the police have only up to that date to hold onto the seized items. After that, Fuzi said, the police would have to go through certain processes, including recommendations from the court before proceeding with the investigations.

On June 27 last year, former Bukit Aman CCID director Amar Singh reportedly said the total value of the items seized in connection with the 1MDB case was between RM900 million and RM1.1 billion.


One Comment
  1. As one lawyer observing the case commented, the forfeiture process was crap. Police is at their wits end trying to salvaged how they shoot their mouths faster than what it really was. Most likely nothing could match and there’s no link to 1MDB.

    For the time being, it is as if the civil forfeiture law is being abused to withheld the personal goods and UMNO’s money. The police could buy time for another year till it is not quite embarassing to release the money and admit there is no case. For PH, it is holding off UMNO from getting their hands on the money.

    Hopefully by then, there could be development on the 1MDB case, which the trail is being dragged by AG. Apparently, they have documentary problems. The 1MDB investigation was supposed to be completed by end of last year but it did not. So AG simply charge and try to buy court time.

    Meanwhile, US’s DOJ is more interested to recover the money than doing any charging. Doubt DOJ will pursue Goldman Sachs, an instutution of financial and political significant to the Jewish network. They could be passing the buck to Mahathir and embarass him.

    If nothing happens by then, the goods and money could then be seized LHDN.

    Najib is being subjected to ridicule, slander and disrespectful treatment as a former PM to save the face of police CID and PH government. In another posting, Najib lamented the loss of humanity in the PH government as he reminded that his elderly mother, Toh Puan Rahah was subjected to inhumane treatment.
