MACC chief commissioner Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull on Tuesday said the MACC’s findings into the 1MDB scandal almost corroborates with that of the US Department of Justice. The U.S. filed forfeiture complaints in 2016 and 2017 seeking to recover over US$1.7 billion in assets traceable to funds allegedly misappropriated from 1MDB. These complaints alleged that more than US$4.5 billion was diverted from 1MDB and laundered through a web of shell companies and bank accounts located in the US and elsewhere.
