Nobody was believed to be at home during the visit.
Dated Jan 17, 2019, the notice states: "It's hereby ordered that such immovable property be seized by the investigating officer and all dealings in respect of such immovable property are prohibited. Take notice that failure to comply with this notice is an offence under the Act".
The notice was signed by deputy public prosecutor Syafinas Shabudin.
