The 1MDB scandal has always been one of the biggest issues in our country not only because notable names were involved but also for leaving the country in a bigger mess and debt than it has ever been.
For a little while back then, the issue has piped down for a bit, but recently, a confession from former Goldman Sachs banker, Tim Leissner, has managed to put the spotlight on the issue once again.
After years of pleading guilty for the scandal of 1MDB, in a recent trial in the United States on the case, Tim Leissner has came forth in his statement. The notorious banker did not only confess on his involvement in the scandal, but also shed light on his 10-year-long affair with the former CEO of Astro Malaysia Holdings Bhd, Rohana Rozhan.
The 50-year-old banker stated that their affair lasted from 2003 up until 2013, before he ended it to be with the celebrity model cum fashion designer, Kimmora Lee Simmons. The break up has resulted in Rohana blackmailing Leissner for a house allegedly located in London’s Montpelier St. that costed him approximately US$10 million in exchange for her to keep Leissner’s involvement in the scandal a secret.
The property was described as a 5-bedroom-terraced house and is the second most expensive property in the SW7 1HD postcode. Not only that it’s huge, but the location is also strategic as it only takes the residents a 5-minute walk to luxury departmental store, Harrods, along with the Victoria and Albert Museum, as well as the largest royal park, Hyde Park. The property was rumoured to have changed under Rohana’s name from Leissner’s circa 2014.
This makes us wonder about what more have they done with Malaysian taxpayers’ money?
