Ex-Goldman bankers Roger Ng will be issued to the United States in January 2019: Amar

SHOWER LUMPUR: Former Goldman Sachs banker Ng Chong Hwa, 51, or better knows that Roger Ng is being served in the United States 60 days after his arrest in connection with the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) investigation.

Federal Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) Commissioner Datuk Seri Amar Singh said that the Malaysian police had received a 60-day detention letter to a former banker after his arrest on November 1 and is currently assisting the US Department of Justice (DoJ) with the extradition process.

"The DoJ has to complete all the necessary steps and documents related to the extradition process in 60 days," he told reporters after the Sri Hartam Police Station began on Wednesday.

Harassed financier Low Daek Jho, also known as Jho Low and former chairman of the Goldman Sachs South East Asia Tim Leissner, was also charged with investigating a number of offenses against foreign governments involving misappropriation, theft and misappropriation of the state budget in billions of dollars.

They are also charged with violating the American Foreign Injury Law (FCPA), which also mentions alleged bribery with officials from Malaysia and Abu Dhabi.

Leissner was blamed for conspiring to dissolve money and violate the FCPA, and ordered him to pay $ 43.7 million (RM182 million).

Ng was also mentioned together with Low, Najib's stepons, Riza Aziz and Leissner to transfer funds from bond deals that ultimately were used to fund a film, Wolf of Wallstreet.

Meanwhile, when asked to comment on the computer systems of Media Prima Bhd, who were raided by cyber attacks, Amars said the police were investigating the case.

On Tuesday, Edge Financial Daily announced that Media Prima has suffered from the ransomware attack by demanding 1,000 dictators corresponding to some RM26.4 million to free access to computer systems.
