KUALA LUMPUR: Police have revealed that the total amount of cash seized from Pavilion Residences was RM114mil, said Datuk Seri Amar Singh.

"A total of 72 bags were seized, and from that 72 bags, only 35 bags contained cash," said the Federal Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) director at a press conference on Friday (May 25).

Comm Amar said that the cash in the 35 bags were from 26 different currencies, and it took 21 bank officials and 11 counting machines to tally the total amount seized.

He added that the remaining 37 bags had contained jewellery and watches.

"We are in the process of authenticating the watches and jewellery and getting estimates of the items' worth," said Comm Amar, adding that he will hold a press conference revealing the total net worth of the items next week.

Comm Amar said that the two of the three units at Pavilion Residences belonged to former premier Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's daughter and son, adding that the third condominium unit was unoccupied and declined to elaborate.

He said that police had also searched a total of 12 locations and recorded 30 statements in the course of their investigations.

On Friday (May 18), police seized 284 boxes filled with designer handbags, watches, jewellery and cash in various currencies from three luxury condominiums here.

Police had earlier searched six locations linked to Najib and in Putrajaya, including the Prime Minister's Office and his official residence.

As for the jewellery and handbags seized, police have yet to ascertain the exact value of the items seized.
