Risk to Malaysian government if 1MDB defaulted on loans estimated in 2015 at $5.12 billion: report

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - The Malaysian government’s exposure as of October 2015 if state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) defaulted on its loans was 20.3 billion ringgit ($5.12 billion) before interest, a declassified auditor’s report made available on Wednesday showed.

The report by the Malaysian auditor general was declassified on Tuesday. A summary that was made available at the time said senior officials at scandal-plagued 1MDB withheld information from its board and took some decisions without the board’s approval.
