PETALING JAYA: Najib Razak and wife Rosmah Mansor have not been blacklisted from leaving the country, said the Immigration Department.

Immigration director-general Mustafar Ali said that reports claiming that the former prime minister and his wife as being blacklisted were untrue.

"Both of them are not blacklisted," he told The Star Online on Saturday (May 12).

A news portal had reported that Najib and Rosmah were on a no-fly list, based on checks on the Immigration Department's Travel Status Enquiry System (SSPI) using their identity card numbers.

Najib had also posted on his Facebook page that he would be taking a short break to spend time with his family "whom I have not seen enough of in recent years".
