The Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) is unaware if former Astro chief executive officer Datuk Rohana Rozhan has returned assets linked to the controversial 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) sovereign wealth fund.
This was revealed in a Parliamentary written reply from the government to Lim Lip Eng (Pakatan Harapan-Kepong) yesterday.
Lim had asked the prime minister to state if Rohana, who was the former girlfriend of ex-Goldman Sachs banker Tim Leissner, had returned money totalling US$10 million to the government.
He had also asked how many of the 1MDB-related assets had been returned to the government.
In a brief response, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Law and Institutional Reform) Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said said: “The AGC has no knowledge on this matter.”
In April last year, it was reported that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) was still investigating the case involving Rohana in connection with the money received from her ex-lover, Leissner.
It was also reported that the MACC had frozen Rohana’s bank accounts and assets, and that the MACC was seeking to repatriate the money from her to be returned. – NST
