The Malaysian police has raided the accounting firm Deloitte Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur office.
The firm is believed to be related to investigations into the 1MDB multibillion dollar scandal and investigators have seized documents and records related to the firm’s dealings with the 1MDB scandal.
According to Reuters, Deloitte Malaysia confirmed that the police sought the firm’s assistance in the provision of records related to 1MDB.
A police source told Malay Mail, a team of investigators from the Bukit Aman Commercial Crimes Investigations Department arrived at the firm in Taman Tun Dr Ismail at noon.
The police team was seen exiting the building and heading for the loading bay at the lower ground floor at around 5.40pm local time.
“Deloitte Malaysia is not the subject of the investigation and is cooperating fully with the authorities in their investigation,” the firm said.
The raid comes just a day after police announced they had new leads on the whereabouts of Low Taek Jho.
Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador said the day before that police would do its best to bring the fugitive Malaysian businessman Low Taek Jho. Hamid, however, declined to reveal what sort new leads that obtained by his men.
When the Inspector-General was asked whether Low Jho Low was hiding in China, he said: “I did not say that.”
Low Taek Jho was believed to be staying in China region last month April 2019.
