(The Star) – Former Goldman Sachs banker Roger Ng who was arrested on Thursday (Nov 1) in connection with the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) investigation, will be extradited to the United States, Comm Datuk Seri Amar Singh.

The Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) director said his officers detained Ng on Thursday in assisting the US Department of Justice (DoJ).

“We served the warrant of arrest that was put out on him.

“The extradition process is still ongoing and he will be extradited once everything is settled,” he told The Star on Friday (Nov 2).

The three-count criminal indictment charged Low Taek Jho, also known as “Jho Low,” and Ng Chong Hwa, also known as “Roger Ng,” with conspiring to launder billions of dollars embezzled from 1MDB and conspiring to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) by paying bribes to various Malaysian and Abu Dhabi officials.
