Malaysia’s Prime Minister Najib Razak speaks during an event in Kuala Lumpur on July 21, 2016. Singapore said on July 21 it had seized nearly 180 million USD linked to scandal-tainted Malaysian state fund 1MDB, raising the pressure a day after Washington moved to grab more than $1 billion in assets over “enormous” fraud. The back-to-back announcements are the clearest and most damning steps yet taken in more than a year of Malaysian tumult over 1MDB, which was founded and overseen by Prime Minister Najib Razak.
