PETALING JAYA: Swiss whistleblower Xavier Andre Justo (pic) has filed criminal complaints in London against a few UK companies and individuals involved in the PetroSaudi-1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) deal.

In a public Facebook post on Thursday, the former PetroSaudi International executive shared a family picture taken with his wife Laura and their young son at the New Scotland Yard premises in London.

“The fight is not over yet, we will chase them all, from the top to the bottom. Their crimes will not be forgotten or forgiven, never!

“We fight as a family because we suffered as a family! We will rest when these crooks will be arrested, not before,” he posted.

In a text message to The Star, Justo listed some of the people and companies mentioned in his criminal complaint to the UK police.

He also named companies such Protection Group International Ltd and Neon Century Ltd.

Another UK firm believed to have been involved in the PetroSaudi-1MDB deal is the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS).

It previously owned Coutts & Co Ltd - which it sold in 2015 - where Good Star Ltd has an account.

Good Star is allegedly controlled by Low Taek Jho or Jho Low, the businessman linked to 1MDB, and is believed to have received US$700mil misappropriated from 1MDB’s joint venture project with PetroSaudi International.

Another UK bank that was involved was Standard Chartered Bank, which had handled the transactions of US$1.1bil allegedly misappropriated from 1MDB to a businessperson in Singapore, according to a report by Malaysiakini.

In 2015, the Monetary Authority of Singapore fined Standard Chartered Bank and Coutts & Co Ltd S$5.2mil (RM15.5mil at current rates) and S$2.4mil (RM7.2mil) respectively for 1MDB-related offences.
