Malaysia’s finance minister has hinted that the country’s government may consider dropping charges against Goldman Sachs over its alleged role in the 1MDB scandal. For a price.
Lim Guan Eng told reporters on Friday that Malaysia would consider a settlement with the bank to the tune of $7.5 billion.
“An apology is just not sufficient. Not enough,” Lim said on Friday, speaking from Malaysia’s administrative capital Putrajaya. “There must be the necessary reparations and compensations.”
