Singapore starts trial of ex-banker linked to 1MDB Fund

SINGAPORE (AP) — A private banker charged with money laundering and other offenses in connection with the indebted Malaysian state fund 1MDB went on trial in Singapore on Monday. Yeo Jiawei, a former wealth planner at Swiss private bank BSI, is facing 11 charges for allegedly obstructing the course of justice, money laundering, cheating and forgery. Singapore ordered BSI to close its operations in the city in May due to violations of anti-money laundering requirements, among other problems. Investigators in Singapore, Switzerland, Hong Kong and the U.S. have been probing allegations that people close to Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak stole more than $1 billion from 1MDB, or 1Malaysia Development Bhd.
