Malaysia files criminal charges against Goldman Sachs over 1MDB scandal - Global Witness response

In response to Malaysia filing criminal charges against employees at Goldman Sachs, Naomi Hirst, Senior Anti-Corruption Campaigner at Global Witness, said: 

“Billion dollar frauds don’t just happen – accountants, lawyers, and bankers are required to be complicit, negligent, or ignorant every step of the way. Today’s charges are a welcome signal that the professional enablers of corruption will be held accountable.”
