Malaysian police spent hours early Thursday searching former Prime Minister Najib Razak's house, reportedly part of a money-laundering investigation linked to a state investment fund that is being investigated overseas.
Wednesday's raid lasted for nearly 18 hours, according to a representative on Najib's legal team, Harpal Singh Grewal.
This comes after a nighttime search at Mr Najib's home this week, when police seized personal items including several boxes of items like handbags, clothes and personal belongings as evidence, his lawyer said.
Documents relating to 1MDB were also seized from Najib's office, while the search of his home on Thursday lasted nearly 18 hours.
But Amar Singh, head of the Malaysian police commercial crime investigation unit, on Friday confirmed the raids were linked to investigations into accusations that Najib, his family, and cronies looted billions from a state investment fund he founded.
He also questioned the timing of the search, which "denied the right" of Mr Najib's family and staff to properly conduct their religious obligations before the opening of fast on the first day of Ramadan.
Najib has been accused of corruption and the mismanagement of 1MDB, which he established in 2009.
More than a dozen police vehicles arrived at Najib's house late Wednesday shortly after he returned home from prayers at a nearby mosque, fueling speculation that he may be arrested after new Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad warned that he could be charged soon over the 1MDB fund fiasco.
