KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 16): Two Goldman Sachs Group Inc. units facing criminal charges for their alleged role in the 1MDB scandal had their cases moved to a higher court in Malaysia.

The High Court on Monday approved the transfer from the Magistrate’s Court for the charges against Goldman Sachs (Asia) LLC and Goldman Sachs International (UK). The petition to transfer the case against a third unit, Goldman Sachs (Singapore), is still pending and will be reviewed at another hearing on Dec. 26.

Malaysia’s Attorney-General’s Chambers told prosecutors to transfer the case to a higher court in September without specifying the reasons, though normally such a move relates to the seriousness of the case. Goldman’s units are accused of misleading investors when arranging US$6.5 billion ($8.8 billion) of bond sales for troubled state fund 1MDB while allegedly knowing the funds would be misused.
