One was the indictment in France of the former Asian boss of French weapon maker Thales, Bernard Baiocco, 72, for allegedly paying kickbacks to Mohd Najib’s former aide, Abdul Razak Baginda, in relation to the purchase of two Scorpene submarines for the Royal Malaysian Navy.
The other, the office of the Swiss Attorney General, on January 29, issued a press statement saying, among other things, that as much as US$4 billion might have been misappropriated from 1MDB and transferred to Swiss bank accounts.
