Malaysia charges 17 Goldman Sachs figures over 1MDB scandal

Malaysia charges 17 Goldman Sachs figures over 1MDB scandal KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Malaysia has filed criminal charges against 17 current and former directors at three Goldman Sachs subsidiaries for their role in the alleged multibillion-dollar ransacking of state investment fund 1MDB. Malaysian and U.S. prosecutors allege that bond sales organized by Goldman Sachs for 1MDB provided one of the means for associates of former Malaysian leader Najib Razak to steal billions over several years from a fund that was ostensibly set up to accelerate Malaysia's economic development.

When Nora Anne Quoirin’s family woke to find their daughter gone from her room in the Malaysian resort, they knew she was particularly at risk — the 15-year-old with a brain development disorder doesn’t go out alone.

“She has been vulnerable since the day she was born,” said the teen’s mother, Meabh Quoirin, her voice shaking. “She is so precious to us, and our hearts are breaking.”

Nine days after the London girl went missing, authorities say they found Nora’s body just over a mile from the Dusun jungle nature resort where she disappeared Aug. 4 during a family vacation. Nora’s parents identified her body Tuesday, according to the BBC.

Earlier in the day, Malaysian police said they were airlifting a body resembling Nora to a hospital. It remains unclear whether Nora wandered off or was abducted, as the Quoirins said they believed. Police have said they are not discounting foul play. They did not immediately respond to an inquiry from The Washington Post.

A spokesman for the Lucie Blackman Trust — which supports Britons in crisis overseas and is helping the Quoirins — told The Post that the trust had heard from police and media that the body was found “undamaged” and that an initial examination has been conducted. But a pathologist is still working to determine the cause of death, Matt Searle, the spokesman, said.

Nora’s disappearance triggered a massive search effort involving drones, sniffer dogs, multiple countries and more than 350 searchers, Malaysian police said.

Syrian refugee stranded in Malaysian airport for months wants to bring 200 migrants to Canada "There is a hero inside each one of us. We just need to find it."

POLICE have said they are "very certain" a naked body found by a jungle waterfall is that of missing Brit girl Nora Quoirin. The body of a white skinned female was found about a mile away from the resort in Malaysia from where the 15-year-old disappeared nine days ago.

Emergency teams say they are now focusing their search for the vulnerable youngster on isolated "hilly areas" MALAYSIA MYSTERY. Nora cops find female body in jungle a mile from where Brit, 15, vanished. Police have released photos of a window they say was left open at the holiday resort

Calls offering help poured into the Lucie Blackman Trust. British, Irish and French authorities joined the effort. Two shaman prayed cross-legged on the forest floor Monday as the search continued, according to Reuters.

Video shows searchers playing a crackling recording of Nora’s mother’s voice as they scour the jungle. It calls out, “Nora darling, mother’s here."

An anonymous donation from a business in Northern Ireland — Nora’s mother is from Belfast, and Nora was traveling on an Irish passport, according to the BBC — helped the Quoirins offer about $12,000 for information that could lead them to their daughter. Crowdfunding efforts raised more $120,000 as the family appealed for aid.

“Nora would not know how to get help and would never leave her family voluntarily,” the teen’s aunt wrote, noting the girl’s learning disabilities.

Searle said the body was found in “a very inaccessible area.” The 12-acre resort of seven houses where the Quoirins were staying is in foothills about an hour’s drive south of the capital of Kuala Lumpur.

SEREMBAN, Malaysia — A body was found on Tuesday in the hunt for a Franco-Irish teen in Malaysia with a charity saying it is likely the missing girl, 10 days after she disappeared from a rainforest resort . Nora Quoirin, 15, went missing on Aug. 4, a day after checking into the resort with

“Obviously there will be questions [about] whether the body was there and undiscovered or whether it was put there since, but it’s too early to speculate on that,” Searle said.

The Lucie Blackman Trust will help the family bring their daughter back home if the body turns out to be Nora’s, Searle added.

Nora’s case had reminded many in Britain of another British girl who vanished from her bedroom while on vacation. Madeleine McCann was just days away from her 4th birthday when she vanished from Praia da Luz, Portugal, in 2007. She has not been found.

Her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, had left their three children sleeping unattended as they ate dinner with friends at a restaurant nearby. They returned to their villa to find Madeleine missing. Like the Quoirin family, the McCanns have always said that their daughter was abducted.

The McCanns were at one point named by Portuguese police as suspects but later cleared. More than a decade since their daughter’s disappearance, Madeleine’s parents continue their appeal to find her.

The McCanns’ case has gained both national and international attention and received copious government funding. According to the BBC, the investigation has cost more than $13 million so far.
