Locksmiths were called in to break open an old safe inside the grand private home of Malaysia's ousted prime minister on Thursday, as the spectacle of a police search at his residence drew the world's media and onlookers from across the country.

Najib also complained about the timing, saying the operation on the eve of the holy Muslim month of Ramadan denied his family's right to properly conduct their religious obligations.

Najib and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor have been blacklisted by the Immigration Department and they are prohibited from leaving the country.

However no documents were taken, Najib's lawyer Datuk Harpal Singh Grewal told reporters after exiting the house at about 4.20 am. It lasted through the night and spanned five properties connected to the recently ousted politician accused of stealing nearly $700 million from 1IMDB.

In a statement, Najib's lawyer Harpal Singh Grewal said police harassment continued for nearly 18 hours though Najib indicated his will to cooperate fully.

"This harassment has now continued for nearly 18 hours and nothing meaningful has come from the search and seizure of what would appear to be insignificant personal items", his lawyer said.
