billion dollar whale

Two weeks ago (10 October 2019) Bright Line Law welcomed Bradley Hope, an award-winning journalist at the Wall Street Journal and author of Billion Dollar Whale, to The Walbrook Club to speak to guests about the alleged multi-billion-dollar fraud of 1MDB, the Malaysian sovereign development fund. Bradley compellingly described the mechanisms of the fraud, key actors and the lavish spending that has characterised the scandal.

The ensuing discussion explored the extent of the UK’s involvement in the fraud, possible criminal, civil and asset forfeiture sanctions and what to expect as the scandal continues to be excavated.
