Two civil forfeiture suits have been filed by the government and the police against former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor and several others to seize RM711mil worth of items, which were allegedly bought using 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) funds.

Financial publication The Edge reported that the suits were filed in the High Court in Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday to seize those items consisting of jewellery, cash, handbags and luxury vehicles from these individuals, adding that the action was a follow-up to the seizure of valuables from the properties in Bukit Bintang and several other places by police last year.
