In order not to prolong the trial of the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) case involving former Goldman Sachs banker Roger Ng, the High Court urged the prosecution to obtain appropriate instructions from AGC.
As Roger Ng needs to complete all appeal procedures for the criminal cases he faces in the United States, Deputy Prosecutor Zaki Aslav said that Roger Ng will be temporarily handed over to the US Department of Justice until February 28, 2024.
1MDB trial to be held on 10 January next year for Case management
Mohammed Gamil has set a case management date of January 10th next year for the prosecution to tell the High Court if there are appropriate directions in the 1 MDB case so that at least the trial will not be delayed for too long without any action.
Roger Ng has completed his criminal trial in the United States, and sentencing proceedings were originally scheduled for November 9th, but have been extended to December 9th. Roger Ng’s lawyer said that the Malaysian and US governments had agreed that Wong would be held over to the US until 28 February 2024.
Wong was convicted of three counts of bribery, evasion of internal controls, and money laundering in the US on April 8, but the sentence has not yet been handed down.
