Umno man denied entry to Najib's house

KUALA LUMPUR: A man claiming to be a long-time acquaintance of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak was turned away by police guarding the scene.

Abdul Rahim Abdul Rahman from the Port Dickson Umno branch questioned the newly formed government's treatment of Najib.

"Is Najib under house arrest?" he asked reporters after he was turned away.

He claimed to be part of the "Friends of Najib Club".

"Me and a few friends had made an appointment to meet Najib in the afternoon but I decided to come a bit earlier.

"Najib is being treated like a criminal. Najib is a strong man, a principled man," Abdul Rahim added.

Several police cars were seen going in and out of the residence as police continue their search for evidence that began late last night.

However, it is unclear if anything was taken out in those vehicles.

Earlier today, Datuk Harpal Singh Grewal, who is the lawyer for the former Umno president confirmed that police did not seize any documents following the simultaneous raids on two locations in KL linked to Najib.

Investigators only siezed handbags, clothes as well as gifts, as evidence.
