Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said U.S. prosecutors had promised to help return money that Goldman Sachs charged for its dealings with troubled Malaysian state fund 1MDB.
The U.S. investment bank has been under scrutiny for its role in helping raise funds through bond offerings for 1MDB, which is the subject of corruption and money-laundering investigations in at least six countries.
Asked if he had officially requested the U.S. DOJ to help return money that Goldman charged for its dealings with 1MDB, Mahathir said:
“It takes a little bit of time but they (DOJ) have promised that they will give back the money.” He was speaking on the sidelines of a speech he delivered in Singapore.
