(2017年6月16日)美國司法部再查一馬發展公司(1MDB),指該公司的高級官員在2009至2015年期間,不當挪用該公司的45億美元(192億令吉)基金。

《彭博社》報導,美國司法部這次充公了總之5.4億美元(23億令吉)的資產,包括22卡拉鑽石、豪華遊艇、電影版權、比卡索名畫等

報導指出,豪華遊艇價值超過2.6億美元(11億令吉)由劉特佐購買,遊艇上有33名員工,並由直升機停機坪、健身房、影院,可以招待26名貴賓,目的為讓大馬「高官」享受高品質生活。

此外,報導稱劉特佐持有 Viceroy酒店集團價值3100萬美元的股份,目的也是讓「高官」享福。

美國司法部持續調查一馬發展公司60億美元基金的全球去向,多國調查機構包括瑞士、新加坡、香港等也介入調查。

一馬發展公司主席兼首相拿督斯里納吉早在去年,已針對美國司法部對於該公司的指控,一一否認。大馬總檢察署也證實納吉清白,並指責美國的調查行動含有政治動機。

1MDB Loot Included Picasso, 『Dumb and Dumber To,』 U.S. Says

The U.S. Justice Department is seeking to recover $540 million in assets -- including art works, jewelry and film rights -- that it says were purchased with funds misappropriated from Malaysia’s 1MDB wealth fund.

It’s the latest attempt by the U.S. government to seize assets linked to the tainted fund, bringing the total sought by the Justice Department to $1.8 billion.

From 2009 through 2015, more than $4.5 billion belonging to 1Malaysia Development Bhd was diverted by high-level officials of the fund and their associates, according to complaints filed Thursday in the Central District of California.

The government also wants to seize a luxury yacht, the Equanimity, valued at more than $260 million. It holds 26 guests and 33 crew members and features a helicopter pad, gym and cinema. And there’s a stake in the Viceroy Hotel Group valued at $31 million. Both were purchased by Jho Low, a Malaysian financier with ties to the country’s prime minister and a taste for the good life, prosecutors say.

『Wolf』 Movie

Last year the government sought assets including properties in Hollywood and New York, various art works and rights and royalties for the 2013 film 「The Wolf of Wall Street.」 The Justice Department alleged a three-part scheme orchestrated Low: Phase one involved the launch of the fund in 2009, and the next two phases involved the sale of bonds arranged by Goldman Sachs in 2012 and 2013.
