Former Prime Minister Najib Razak is possibly under an unofficial house arrest.

Police began cordoning off the exit to and from the private residence of former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at Jalan Langgak Duta, Taman Duta Bernama said today.

He could be cordoned there while the new government launches a new investigation on the 1MDB scandal.

There are no indications that ex-PM or his wife are within the compound. Najib lost the elections in Malaysia and was barred from leaving the country on Saturday.

Question is whether the ex-pm is under an unofficial house arrest?

However, it is certain the House is cordoned to prevent people and documents from leaving the compound.

Rumours are that bank accounts belonging to Najib and his wife Rosmah Mansor are also blocked, but this information could not be confirmed at the time of publication.

Bernama said Deputy Sentul police chief Supt Mohamed Rafiq Mohamed Mustafa , when contacted by Bernama, said policemen from the Sentul police station had been deployed there for security monitoring.

A check by Bernama there saw five policemen stationed at the entrance to Najib’s residence.

There was also a mobile police station and all vehicles and individuals passing the area were monitored, said Bernama.

Reuters yesterday reported a raid was carried out at one of Najib’s houses in Kuala Lumpur.

Police on Saturday raided a deluxe Kuala Lumpur apartment block at which relatives of ousted Prime Minister Najib Razak had been staying as they searched for sensitive documents the new government fears may be taken out of the country, two senior police officers told Reuters.
