The Monetary Authority of Singapore issued prohibition orders against two individuals for their involvement in 1MDB-related matters.
The regulator said it issued a lifetime ban against Yeo Jiawei, a former wealth manager of BSI Bank, and a three-year ban against Kevin Scully, CEO of NRA Capital Pte. Ltd, from offering financial advisory services, taking part in the management of, acting as a director of, or becoming a substantial shareholder of any financial advisory firm in Singapore.
Both orders took effect Dec. 18, the regulator added in a Dec. 19 release.
Yeo was investigated by the Commercial Affairs Department and convicted by the Singapore courts on a number of charges, including money laundering, cheating, and witness tampering.
MAS also found that Scully failed to ensure NRA Capital, which was appointed to conduct the valuation of PetroSaudi Oil Services Ltd., took "sufficient care, judgment and objectivity" in executing the task. PetroSaudi Oil Services is linked to the 1MDB investigations.
As of Dec. 18, US$1 was equivalent to S$1.35.
