Ex-Malaysian PM 'unhappy' over police raids

Malaysia's former Prime Minister Najib Razak has criticised police raids after hundreds of luxury items and cash were seized at properties linked to him.
 
Najib's lawyer, Harpal Singh Grewal, said his client was "very unhappy".
 
The raids were related to investigations into state development fund 1MDB, which Najib set up.
 
Separately, Mongolia's president has called for the new Malaysian government to investigate the grisly 2006 murder of a Mongolian model.
 
Shaariibuu Altantuya, 28, was shot dead and blown up with explosives outside the capital Kuala Lumpur.
 
Two ex-police officers were sentenced to death for the murder in 2015.
 
If the case were re-opened it could spell more trouble for the recently toppled Najib.
 
The two officers belonged to an elite unit protecting top lawmakers, including the then deputy PM, when Altantuya, was killed. She was the mistress of a close Najib associate.
 
Speculation about Najib's links to the murder have swirled in Malaysia for years but he has repeatedly said he never met the model and had nothing to do with it.
 
Billions of dollars are unaccounted for from the fund.
 
Najib was in 2015 alleged to have pocketed $700m (£517m) but was cleared by authorities.
 
He has always denied the allegations.
