Australia: Government urged to act on a Malaysian family that allegedly laundered 30 million into South Australia

Details

Government in Australia has been urged to act on a Malaysian family that allegedly laundered 30 million into South Australia. This follows a report by Swiss-based Bruno Manser Fund, an anti-corruption organization concerned over logging of rainforests which alleges that Sarawak, governor and former chief minister Abdul Taib Mahmud and his family invested $30 million of unexplained wealth in Adelaide real estate in the 1990s, principally a major hotel. Taib Mahmud has been under investigation for the past four years by the Malaysian anti-corruption commission but the probe has faced strong political resistance. http://www.9news.com.au/national
