Police Deny Rumour Money Counting Slow Because Election Commission Helping

KUALA LUMPUR: Commercial Crime Investigations Department (CCID) officials today confirmed they were making steady progress counting the mountains of money seized from properties linked to former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak but admitted the counting is taking longer than expected.

“It takes time to count tens of millions of dollars when we must record serial numbers for each banknote,” explained overstuffed baggage currency tally analyst Abdullah Bin Bakar,

“We’ve collected 72 bags of cash and jewellery in total, and so far counted only 11 from the total 26 suitcases brought to headquarters.”

The CCID have denied asking Election Commission vote counters for counting assistance as they are keen to announce results before the end of Pakatan’s first term in office.
