Previously, Najib claimed that the cash belonged to Umno and was in the process of being transferred to the new leadership following his resignation as party president.

Rashid also revealed that the police's anti-money laundering unit have identified several bags and watches which are suspected to have been purchased with proceeds from unlawful activities.

“The police are also working with (the authorities) in several countries to assist the investigations.

“We are also in the process of collecting sufficient evidence in order for prosecution and forfeiture of property to take place,” he added.

Rashid said the police have until May 19 to complete their investigations.
