According to The Star, they already had a meeting with officers from the United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Justice (DoJ) at Perdana Putra today. The purpose of the meeting was mainly to discuss the 1MDB investigations and also to start the process of getting back the Malaysian assets frozen in the US. 

It would probably come as no surprise to anyone that the FBI and DoJ’s requests to work together with Malaysia in the past were ignored by both the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and the Attorney-General. A statement released by the 1MDB Special Task Force said,

“The FBI had requested for cooperation from the then Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad in a letter dated Nov 13, 2016 but they did not receive any response.”

“DoJ also confirmed that it had made a ‘Mutual Legal Assistance’ (MLA) request to the then Attorney-General Tan Sri Apandi Ali on Sept 22, 2017. However, the request was not fulfilled and delayed on the grounds that it will affect ongoing investigations by Malaysian authorities,” the statement added.

The statement also said that the DoJ and FBI were grateful for the new Malaysian government’s cooperation in the 1MDB case as the previous government did not take any action. Both parties have now agreed to give full cooperation to each other so that the 1MDB investigations can be completed.

Looks like the 1MDB case is making real headway!
