How the 1MDB scandal spread across the world

Starting in Malaysia, a scandal involving the 1MDB fund set up by Prime Minister Najib Razak now involves at least 10 countries, including the United States.

This animation by the Wall Street Journal shows how money allegedly misappropriated from 1MDB moved through global wealth centres before being used to buy real estate, art, and other assets around the world, including in New York and Beverley Hills.

Jho Low is the mastermind involved in stealing funds from 1MDB and assisted by MO1. Both should be arrested without further delay.

Jho Low is the mastermind in 1MDB money laundering and you know who is the one who assists him, right
These two must faced criminal charges for stealing Rakyaats money. SHAME to both.
