Searches were conducted at two residences of former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak by Police teams in Kuala Lumpur, on the night of May 16.

Najib's lawyer Datuk Harpal Singh Grewal said police were trying to drill into the safe, which was found at 8.30am.

Gerwal dubbed the pursuit "unwarranted harassment", claiming that Najib had been "prepared and willing to extend his fullest cooperation" to police.

"This harassment has now continued for nearly 18 hours and nothing meaningful has come from the search and seizure of what would appear to be insignificant personal items", the lawyer said.

He also questioned the timing of the search, which "denied the right" of Mr Najib's family and staff to properly conduct their religious obligations before the opening of fast on the first day of Ramadan.

Singh said the valuables were seized late on Wednesday in raids on six properties linked to the former premier, including the prime minister's office and official residence as well as four private residences.

"The police have their standard operating procedure".

Police have been searching Najib's home and other places linked to him as part of an investigation into the scandal-plagued state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), an extraordinary turn of events that few would have predicted before a May 9 general election that he was expected to win. "I suppose the police have enough reasons to raid", he said.

Mr Najib and his wife Rosmah Mansor have been blacklisted by the Immigration Department and can not leave the country. But my instruction is very clear.

At a press conference after chairing a meeting of the Pakatan Harapan Presidential Council here, Dr Mahathir was asked why the police had raided Najib's house at night. "The investigations involve several government agencies or ministries, such as the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, police, National Audit Department and other bodies which have information", he said.

Mahathir has said there was sufficient evidence for further investigations into 1MDB.

"Our personnel checked these bags and discovered various currencies including Malaysian ringgit, U.S. dollars, watches and jewellery in 72 bags", he said.
