Foreign banks circle 1MDB over RM3bil loan
A group of six international banks are seeking for early payment of their US$975 million (RM3.6 billion) loan to cash-strapped 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), reports Singapore's Business TImes.

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.
