KUALA LUMPUR: The RM1.1bil valuation of cash and items seized from premises linked to Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is not exaggerated, says Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun (pic).

The Inspector-General of Police said the valuation was done by the experts who assisted the investigators.

"It was not done by us but by experts who came in and assessed the value of the items.

"The counting was not done haphazardly as we have to follow proper procedures and due process," he told a press conference on Thursday (June 28).

Asked if the Najib would be allowed to view the items seized, Fuzi said that the police would consider the request and adhere to procedure.

On the status of the investigation, Mohamad Fuzi said there were many angles to it.

"I cannot say whether we are halfway through or quarter way through. Give us time to thoroughly investigate the matter," he said.

On Wednesday (June 27), Najib claimed the price of jewellery and other items seized were "exaggerated" by the police.
