This crook who should go to jail for a decade is married in his own way to a celebrity who will probably end up on RHOBH.

He is also hiding a bunch of money from the government through accounts he opened with a former girlfriend no one knew he was dating or knows about.

Ex-Goldman banker Tim Leissner ordered to forfeit US$43.7m over 1MDB bribery fraud

NEW YORK – Former Goldman Sachs banker Tim Leissner, who pleaded guilty to participating in the massive 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) foreign bribery fraud, was ordered to forfeit US$43.7 million (S$58.7 million) in cash as well as all 3.3 million shares in fitness drink company Celsius Holdings.

US District Judge Margo Brodie on Friday ordered Leissner to surrender the assets as part of his earlier guilty plea to foreign bribery and money laundering charges related to the 1MDB scandal. Leissner has been free on US$20 million bail since his arrest in June 2018. He pleaded guilty in August 2018 and was the government’s star witness against former Goldman colleague Roger Ng.

The forfeiture order comes the same day that the government recommended a term of at least 15 years in prison for Ng. Ahead of the full recommendation, United States prosecutors on Friday asked Judge Brodie to order Ng to forfeit US$35.1 million.

Judge Brodie said in her Friday order that the Celsius shares were being held at a JPMorgan Chase account in the name of Leissner’s former wife, Ms Kimora Lee Simmons. The judge said anyone who asserts a legal interest in the Celsius shares may file a petition with the court. – Source
