PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): Malaysia welcomes the move by the Singapore State Courts granting the return of 1 Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) monies with a total value of some S$15.3mil (RM45.9mil) to the country, says Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng.

“I hope this is the beginning of more to come. After all, the sum of these monies is only a tip of the iceberg to be returned relating to 1MDB. 

“We also want to thank the Attorney General on his efforts which are now bearing fruits,” he said in a statement here Monday (Sept 10). 

Earlier, the Singapore State Courts granted disposal orders in respect of monies that had been unlawfully misappropriated from the 1MDB and/or SRC International Sdn Bhd group of companies.

These monies are being transferred to the special 1MDB recovery bank account in Kuala Lumpur, said the statement.  It added efforts to recover other unlawfully misappropriated assets were ongoing.  - Bernama
