No funds misappropriated from 1MDB, insists Apandi



Attorney-general (AG) Mohamed Apandi Ali has maintained there is no evidence of alleged embezzlement from 1MDB.
He was responding to the United States Department of Justice's (DOJ) latest civil forfeiture suit filing this week.
"We […] note that there has been no evidence from any investigation conducted by any law enforcement agencies in various jurisdictions that shows that money has been misappropriated from 1MDB; and that there have been no criminal charges against any individuals for misappropriation of funds from 1MDB.
"1MDB is a Malaysian company and has been the subject of multiple investigations within Malaysia, including by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, auditor-general (AG's Chambers) and bi-partisan public accounts committee (PAC).
"After review, we found that that no crime was committed.
"Presently there is still an ongoing investigation conducted by the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) concerning 1MDB," said Apandi in a statement today.
The AG expressed "frustration that yet again AG Chambers was not informed or alerted by DOJ of this action".
The DOJ last night announced its most significant milestone since July 21 last year, when US investigators first went public on the 1MDB scandal and declared that Malaysians had been defrauded on an enormous scale.
At that time, US investigators said more than US$3 billion was allegedly misappropriated from 1MDB and sought to seize around US$1 billion in ill-gotten assets.
In the third and latest filing last night, the DOJ now puts the allegedly misappropriated figure at US$4.5 billion and is seeking to seize US$1.7 billion in assets purportedly acquired using funds stolen from 1MDB.
