Meeting was to get Goldman jobs for Najib's children, star witness tells 1MDB jury in the US


NEW YORK (BLOOMBERG): The star witness in the bribery trial of former Goldman Sachs Group Inc banker Roger Ng testified that ex-Goldman chief Lloyd Blankfein met in 2009 with then Malaysian prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak ahead of a US$6.5bil (RM27.2bil) in bond deals for the country’s wealth fund - and that the meeting came with an agenda.

In return for the lucrative business, Goldman was to get Najib's three children jobs at the bank, former South-East Asia chairman Tim Leissner (pic) told the jury on Tuesday about the 1MDB scheme.
