Malaysia police raid ex-PM house as part of corruption probe

Malaysia's Anwar says Najib likely headed to jail

Asked if he would play any role in deciding Dr Mahathir's cabinet line-up, Anwar said as the premier, it is Dr Mahathir's prerogative to form the cabinet, but he was given the assurance that the prime minister would consult all Pakatan component party leaders before deciding on its composition. He and other spectators were kept off the road by a police cordon.

The national Bernama news agency cited sources as saying that the police were looking for documents related to 1MDB, and that several boxes were loaded into a police truck.

Commercial crime director Amar Singh Ishar Singh told local media that police were searching for evidence in an ongoing probe and that it was being carried out at five locations belonging to or linked to Najib. Singh characterised them as "searches", not raids.

"But naturally, it would take weeks or months. from Harvard, Stamford and other universities because I think I have a small contribution to make.to show the voice of reason and moderation in Islam is paramount and Muslims can be counted upon to ensure freedom and justice", he said.

On Wednesday, Mahathir said Abdul Gani had told him this week that he had prepared criminal charges implicating Najib when he was removed.

After his release, Anwar emerged as a prominent opposition figure, and in the 2013 general election led the coalition against then-Prime Minister Najib Razak. He said the items were believed to have been taken for the objective of investigation under the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorism Financing Act 2001, said Bernama.

Najib, whose government was plagued with scandal, was soundly defeated in last week's parliamentary election by veteran politician Mahathir Mohamad. At one point, prosecutors produced a mattress that they said was stained with semen, accusing Anwar of having sex with two male aides.

Taliban claim capturing key areas as clashes still ongoing in Farah city
Residents said Taliban forces began their attack at around 2.00 a.m. (2130 GMT) from several directions. It borders Helmand Province, where the militants control several districts.

Mahathir said the government will seek to retrieve billions of dollars laundered from 1MDB to repay government debts that have piled up over the years.

"The focus on corruption is important because we need to get back money which is still in Switzerland, the US, Singapore and maybe Luxembourg".

In the largest single action ever brought under the US government's Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative, the US State Department is seeking to recover more than US$1bn in assets that were looted from the 1MDB fund and laundered through the US.

"The money belongs to Malaysia and it came from 1MDB". He denies the corruption allegations and was cleared in a government investigation. "Anwar bin Ibrahim", said a statement issued by the palace. The tax has been blamed for raising the cost of living and has angered many Malaysians.

Anwar was also imprisoned for six years after being overthrown as Mahathir's deputy prime minister in 1998 on earlier charges of sodomising his former family driver and abusing his power.

Anwar will have to become a member of parliament - most likely through a by-election - in order to be sworn in as prime minister.
