United States Seeks to Recover More Than $1 Billion Obtained from Corruption Involving Malaysian Sovereign Wealth Fund

Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch announced today the filing of civil forfeiture complaints seeking the forfeiture and recovery of more than $1 billion in assets associated with an international conspiracy to launder funds misappropriated from a Malaysian sovereign wealth fund.  Today’s complaints represent the largest single action ever brought under the Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative.

According to the complaints, from 2009 through 2015, more than $3.5 billion in funds belonging to 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) was allegedly misappropriated by high-level officials of 1MDB and their associates.  With today’s complaints, the United States seeks to recover more than $1 billion laundered through the United States and traceable to the conspiracy. 

1MDB was created by the government of Malaysia to promote economic development in Malaysia through global partnerships and foreign direct investment, and its funds were intended to be used for improving the well-being of the Malaysian people.  Instead, as detailed in the complaints, 1MDB officials and their associates allegedly misappropriated more than $3 billion.



 steadyaku47 comment :

There is no doubt in the minds of the US government that US$3 billion intended to be used for improving the well-being of the Malaysian people were misappropriated by high officials of 1MDB and their associates  - and the US Department of Justice was seeking to forfeit and recover more than US$1 billion of that amount.

The details and individuals involved in this caper are all familiar to us. Their names roll off our tongues with the same ease as we have done in the past for Botak Chin, Bentong Kali, Mat Kommando, Mona Fandy, Man Telur....rogues, villains and murderers among them. Today the guys in the big leagues are Riza Aziz, Jho Low, Najib Razak, Rosmah Mansor and their cohorts.

Not only the US, but the world is talking about our prime minister, his wife and their family of thieves. Everywhere else the main stream media and television stations tells us about the exploits of Najib and Family...recounting details of Tun Razak's other sons and their "business" capers and deeds. Everywhere else but in Malaysia. In Malaysia the Internet is the "go to" source for the Malaysian public hungry and starved of news about their first thieving family. 

You and me, we have front row seats to witness any of the following happening:
  • Either the final days of Najib Razak and Family.
  • The final days of Umno as we know it now.
  • Or our final days as Najib Razak, Umno and all their cohorts uses the National Security Act to now do what they have been threatening to do all this while : Govern for another five decades!  
Take your pick....anything is possible. 

Put yourself in Najib's place. 

He has been found out with Ringgit 2.6 billion in his personal bank account. A donation, he says, from a Saudi royalty that you, I and Najib himself, knows does not exists. 

He tells us that he has returned the bulk of that money but again, you know, I know and Najib knows it is a lie because if it is true, all he has to do to verify to us what he has done is to show us documentation to prove that he has returned the  money. To date he has not done so.   

He has sacked his deputy, the AG and a host of other senior civil servants whose work it is to act as check and balances against any one pillaging and plundering our nation's coffers as Najib is now doing.

And now the icing on the cake : The US Department of Justice has moved to forfeit and seize over US1 billion worth of assets bought with money that came from 1MDB. The chief culprit in this caper is Riza Aziz - the son of Rosmah with another husband but whose current spouse, Najib Razak, is prime minister of our country and chairman and head honcho in 1MDB - the government owned company whose officials have been complicit in laundering the money used by Riza Aziz and his cohorts to buy property, invest, gamble and buy anything else of value in America. 

Now tell me...if you are Najib what would you do? 

The only thing that is keeping the balls that Najib is juggling in the air  (which includes among other things, 1MDB, the RM2.6 billion donation, Mahathir and gang coming after him etc etc ) is his job as PM.  The moment he loses his PM job - before the mamak can even make a cendol with a "semus taruh" special plus pulut - the new IGP will have Najib and wife handcuffed and in custody!

So what will you do? Submit meekly or fight to the last breath in your pudgy self because if you don't ,that bitch of a wife is going to castrate, tar and feather you even before the new IGP can Tweet his order to his people in Putrajaya to take you into their custody!

Long story short...Umno and Najib are here to stay for the long haul. Now that they have the new National Security Act all ready to rock and roll...watch out!

Short of an armed rebellion by the masses nothing else will work. 

Not the opposition that is now a caricature of itself. Not the political activists that turn out for the Bersih Rallies and not those demos organised from time to time by the opposition just to keep themselves relevant.

The leader we want, the leader we need and the leader that will lead Malaysians against the corrupt politicians is still silent within our midst. I think he or she will be young. I think he or she may be a Malay, maybe a Chinese, Indian, Kadazan, Iban or Dayak or he or she may be any of the other Malaysians that call Malaysia home....and all that we aspire for, hope for and want for our people, our nation and our future, that person too will want!

So for now we wait.
