Former Goldman Sachs banker Roger Ng is expected to be extradited to the United States within 60 days from the day of his arrest, in connection with the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) investigation.

The Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) director Datuk Seri Amar Singh said Malaysian police obtained a 60-day remand order following Ng's arrest on Nov 1 in Malaysia.

The United State’s Department of Justice (DoJ) had charged Ng's former colleague Tim Leissner alongside fugitive financier Low Taek Jho, also known as Jho Low, over funds misappropriated from 1MDB and paying bribes to various Malaysian and Abu Dhabi officials.
