Fugitive businessman Low Taek Jho has maintained his innocence after the United States Department of Justice (DoJ) charged him in court over the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal.
The DoJ on Thursday charged Low along with two former Goldman Sachs bankers, Ng Chong Hwa, also known as Roger Ng and Tim Leissner.
The men were charged with conspiring to launder billions of dollars from 1MDB and conspiring to bribe officials in Malaysia and Abu Dhabi, violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
