PETALING JAYA: Bukit Aman has pieced together the money trail behind the purchase of a pink diamond that allegedly used 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) funds.

Bukit Aman IGP secretariat Anti-Money Laundering division chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Khalil Azlan Chik said that police obtained evidence that the pink diamond worth US$23mil was bought from a jeweller in New York using 1MDB funds.

"Even though the diamond was not found during the raids conducted, we have found enough evidence to show that the diamond was purchased," he said in a statement on Saturday (April 13).

He was commenting on the denial issued by Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor regarding the purchase of the pink diamond.
