A report that ex-PM Najib Razak and his wife was on a private jet’s passenger list out of the Subang Airport this morning to Bali went viral in Malaysia overnight.

But after a confusion on Najib’s immigration status, the ex-Premier twitted this morning that he was effectively barred from leaving the country.

In a new twist, the Immigration Department has now declared that they have “just now” blacklisted ousted prime minister Najib Abdul Razak and his wife Rosmah Mansor.

Najib has also twitted (see below) that he was not allowed to leave the country.

There were no comments from the newly elected Pakatan Harapan leadership.

Najib, speaking up on his controversial flight schedule leaked online, saying he needs to take a break to catch up with family after the intense 14th general election.

“After over four decades in politics and the recent election campaign, which was regrettably personal and perhaps the most intense in Malaysian history, I will take a short break to spend time with my family whom I have not seen enough of in recent years,” he posted on his Facebook this morning.

This follows his purported flight itinerary being leaked online, indicating he and his wife Rosmah Mansor were scheduled to depart for Jakarta at 10 am today.

The couple is to travel on a private jet operated by Premiair.

Premiair is a company owned by Peter Sondakh, who is also the boss of PT Rajawali Corp,said Malaysiakini last night.
