Malaysian police confiscated 284 designer handbags and 72 suitcases containing cash, jewelry and other valuables Friday as part of a corruption and money-laundering investigation into former Prime Minister Najib Razak.U.S. investigators say Najib's associates stole and laundered $4.5 billion from the fund, some of which landed in Najib's bank account, and that $23 million was used to buy a pink diamond necklace for his wife. Najib, whose coalition was ousted in a stunning election defeat last week, denies any wrongdoing.Documents related to 1MDB were taken from the office and police are still trying to crack open a safe in Najib's house, he said.He declined to say if the haul would lead to an indictment for Najib. Police spent 20 hours beginning late Wednesday searching Najib's house, and his lawyer said items such as handbags and clothing were taken away.
