Police enter Najib's apartment in Pavilion KL, increase presence at Tmn Duta home

KUALA LUMPUR: An increased police presence in front of former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's house has caused a media frenzy.

Dozens of media practitioners have arrived here after police cars and a Black Maria arrived at his Jalan Duta residence at around 10.15pm.

The police arrived after he returned from prayers at the Kampung Baru mosque.

Deputy OCPD Supt Mohamed Rafiq Mohamed Mustafa, when leaving the premises only told the media to "wait and see."

Najib’s lawyer Datuk Hasnal Rezua Merican was seen entering the house with an unidentified woman, while his press secretary Datuk Seri Tengku Sariffuddin Tengku Ahmad was also at the premises, according to Berita Harian.

The build-up of media personnel and members of the public has led to traffic slowing to a crawl in the area.

The police have laid out the yellow police tape to prevent the crowd from going over their perimeter.

Tens of police personnel - including senior Bukit Aman officers - were seen at Najib's condominium at the Pavilion Residence Apartment KL on Wednesday night, according to Bernama.

Police have also been seen at Prime Minister's Office and Sri Perdana.
