Skandal 1MDB: Switzerland Sita Tiga Lukisan Van Gogh Dan Monet


Bertindak atas pemintaan Amerika Syarikat, pihak berkuasa Switzerland merampas tiga karya yang berkait dengan siasatan keatas syarikat milik kerajaan Malaysia 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), kata mereka pada Khamis.

Jurucakap Pejabat Kehakiman Persekutuan berkata karya yang dirampas adalah La Maison de Vincent à Arles (rumah Vincent di Arles) yang dilukis Van Gogh, dan Saint-Georges Majeur (senja kala di San Giorgio Maggiore) dan Nympheas avec Reflets de Hautes Herbes (pantulan telepok dan pelbagai herba) yang dilukis Monet.

Beliau mengesahkan laporan oleh akhbar Neue Luzerner Zeitung.

“Operasi masih belum tamat maka kami tidak akan beri sebarang kenyataan berhubung lokasi lukisan-lukisan itu,” katanya.

Amerika Syarikat memfailkan saman pada Rabu untuk merampas aset-aset bernilai AS$1 bilion (RM4.07 bilion) yang dibeli dengan wang yang dipercayai disonglap daripada 1MDB.

The Swiss authorities, acting on United States request, have seized three rare paintings linked to an investigation into the scandal-hit Malaysian state fund 1MDB.

A spokeswoman for the Federal Office of Justice said the paintings were Vincent van Gogh's La maison de Vincent à Arles and Claude Monet's Saint-Georges Majeur and Nympheas avec Reflets de Hautes Herbes.
She was confirming a report by the Neue Luzerner Zeitung newspaper.

"The operation is not over yet so we will not comment at the moment on the location of the paintings," she said.

The US government on Wednesday filed lawsuits seeking to seize $1 billion in assets bought with money believed to have been stolen from the Malaysian 1MDB sovereign wealth fund.

The civil lawsuits allege that a total of $3.5 billion was misappropriated from 1MDB, a fund Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak established in 2009 and whose advisory board he chaired.

Federal prosecutors are seeking to seize $1 billion that they say was diverted from 1MDB into luxury real estate in New York, Beverly Hills and London as well as paintings by Van Gogh and Monet and a private jet.

They also are trying to seize proceeds from the 2013 film "The Wolf of Wall Street". Riza Aziz, Najib's stepson and founder of Red Granite Pictures, which produced the movie, was named in the lawsuit.
