Description

By Reuters

Description:
A $250 million luxury yacht linked to a multi-billion dollar scandal at a Malaysian state fund arrived at Port Klang, months after it was first seized by Indonesian authorities. The Cayman Islands-flagged yacht, named the Equanimity, was seized in February at the request of U.S. authorities as part of a multi-billion dollar corruption investigation launched by the Department of Justice related to 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB). A total of $4.5 billion was misappropriated from 1MDB by high-level officials of the fund and their associates, according to civil lawsuits filed by the U.S. Justice Department. The fund, founded by former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, is at the center of money-laundering probes in at least six countries, including the United States, Switzerland and Singapore. Malaysian authorities are seeking to arrest Low Jho, the financier who allegedly bought the 91 meter (300-foot) Equanimity. Lawsuits have identified him as a central figure in the 1MDB scandal, but his whereabouts are unknown.

U.S. and Malaysian investigators have also named Jho Low as a key figure who benefited from 1MDB funds. The former prime minister said he refrained from talking about 1MDB issue during his tenure on worries over international diplomatic ramifications. But he added it is now time to speak out and clear his name, and he has no intentions of fleeing the country even if he faces the possibility of going to jail.
