S'pore court convicts Jho Low's ex-banker
Former BSI Singapore banker Yeo Jiawei has been convicted over witness-tampering charges in relation to the island-state's investigations on 1MDB's money trail.
District Judge Ng Peng Hong said Yeo was an "unreliable and not a credible witness" before finding him guilty. Yeo faces a maximum seven-year jail sentence. Sentencing will take place tomorrow.
Over the course of the trial, prosecution witnesses testified that Malaysian tycoon Jho Low was Yeo's client and that the two enjoyed very close ties.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
