Appreciation for Singapore's help in reclaiming 1MDB-linked funds

Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad on bilateral relations with Singapore. He touches on topics including 1MDB, water supply and the building of a bridge.

Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said he appreciates Singapore's role in helping his country reclaim monies laundered from troubled state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

"Some people brought money belonging to 1MDB to Singapore, and many people were paid out of money that was stolen. Singapore took action to arrest them, to charge them and all that, and also to return to us the money that has been stolen. That is cooperation that we appreciate," he told The Straits Times in an interview yesterday.
