According to Malaysia Decides, the woman, who was said to be the then head of a powerful intelligence unit – Malaysian External Intelligence Organisation – under the Prime Minister’s Department, went on leave pending a probe that Najib had handed her important documents two days before GE14.
The news portal reported that Bukit Aman police raided her house in Seri Kembangan.
They also sealed two buildings in Putrajaya and Jalan Bellamy from where the unit operated. However, no documents were found.
The top officer, backed by 300 personnel, reported only to Najib, it said.
“It basically operated as a spy agency, and all its activities were tailored at keeping Najib in power,” the portal reported.
Meanwhile, Datuk Harpal Singh Grewal and M. Athimulan have withdrawn from Najib’s legal team.
“We were not kicked out. We left because another team came in,” Harpal said late last night.
It is believed that the new team is being led by former solicitor-general Datuk Mohd Yusof Zainal Abidin.
