Martin will be interviewing Deborah Connor, the U.S. Department of Justice’s Chief of the Money Laundering and Asset Recovery Section, about the ongoing asset recovery effort in the famous #1MDB case.
U.S. and Malaysian authorities say a total of about $4.5 billion was taken from 1MDB – an institution co-founded in 2009 by then-premier Najib Razak, who was sentenced to 12 years in prison and a $49 million fine last year (which he is appealing). One of the stranger facets of this case was the DoJ assertion that a film production company (co-founded by Razak’s stepson) had financed three films, including “The Wolf of Wall Street” featuring Leonardo Di Caprio, using funds it suspected were stolen from 1MDB.
