"Daim can contribute but he must be aware. People appreciate that he has joined, but people are also expressing deep consternation that he has been unable to explain some major problems in the past.
"People say there's no need to bring old baggage, which is true, but to me, if you want to talk about democratic accountability, it must not stop at (former prime minister) Najib (Abdul Razak).
"Although I don't think (it should go) to the extent of a vendetta, and endless witch hunt," Anwar said in an exclusive interview with Malaysiakini at his residence today.
It's interesting to hear Anwar say "I don't think (it should go) to the extent of a vendetta, and endless witch hunt" because I reckon that have been going on against Najib.
MM Online informs us via Lawyer: Najib’s home raided over money-laundering probe, handbags seized that the police raided and search Najib's house for more than 6 hours in a money-laundering investigation, but made no arrest nor took away any documents except handbags and clothing.
The Star Online reported:
Najib’s lawyer Datuk Harpal Singh Grewal told the media at 4am on Thursday (May 17) that police had searched Najib’s house in Taman Duta.
He said the family were cooperative.
“No documents were taken, nothing of note, only personal possessions including bags.”
“It's a big house so they had to search each room. That's why it took so long.”
“There are no arrests now and no indication that there will be an arrest” he said.
No charges were mentioned, although Harpal believes that it could be under the money laundering act.
He also confirmed that police had also searched an apartment in KL.

once a proud Bugis warrior, now sadly down and out
The police's marathon search of former premier Najib Abdul Razak's residence along Jalan Langgak Duta in Kuala Lumpur has raised the ire of those close to him.
A source told Malaysiakini that conducting such an operation on the first day of Ramadhan was unwarranted.
He also shared a photograph of Najib falling asleep on the sofa as police officers from the federal commercial crimes department combed his house.
He pointed out that as a former premier, the latter should be accorded due respect regardless of the circumstances.
“This is uncalled for. Why couldn't they conduct the search earlier? He has to prepare for Sahur (pre-fasting meal) soon,” he added.
The source also criticised Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad over the operation, which came exactly a week after Pakatan Harapan won the 14th general election.
“Looks like Mahathir's revenge has won. I hope he is happy wherever he is sleeping,” he added.
