Jasa: Yeo Jiawei's conviction doesn't affect PM, Arul
The Special Affairs Department (Jasa) insisted that ex-BSI banker Yeo Jiawei's conviction in Singapore does not implicate 1MDB president Arul Kanda Kandasamy and Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak in the 1MDB investigations.
"Many have asked why Yeo was sentenced to 30 years (sic) by the Singaporean court recently.
"The answer (is) Yeo was convicted on witness-tampering charges, in the money-laundering case which was investigated by the Singaporean Commercial Affairs Department (CAD)," Jasa said in a statement today.
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/opposition 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.
