PETALING JAYA: For the first time, the identity of Tan Kim Loong, 40, a key figure in the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) scandal, has been revealed.
In a statement on Monday, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) released a photofit of Tan, also known as Eric Tan, together with three others as those wanted to facilitate investigations in connection with 1MDB.
The other three are Tang Keng Chee (Casey Tang), 53, Geh Choh Heng, 47 and Loo Ai Swan (Jasmine Loo), 45.
Tan is known as the "mystery man" and is thought to be masquerading in another name.
He was identified as a signatory for numerous bank accounts in Singapore from which money from 1MDB accounts were laundered.
The accounts were RBS Coutts Bank and Falcon Bank.
Tan has been a wanted man, together with businessman Low Taek Jho, also known as Jho Low, since October 2016.
Tang, Geh and Loo were former employees of the scandal-riddled 1MDB.
Tang was an investment executive and pioneer in 1MDB. Geh and Loo also worked in the firm.
Tang and Loo have been on the wanted list for a few years now, but this is the first time Geh’s name has surfaced.
