KUALA LUMPUR (Bloomberg): A Malaysian financier accused of looting billions from investment fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) has hired several politically connected lawyers in the US to defend his interests in a sprawling Justice Department investigation.  

Low Taek Jho, also known as Jho Low, who is wanted in Malaysia for money laundering and has been described in US court filings as the man who orchestrated the theft of more than US$4bil from 1MDB, has retained former New Jersey governor Chris Christie and one of President Donald Trump’s go-to law firms, Kasowitz Benson Torres, among others.
