The plot thickens in the 1MDB probe as Singapore authorities seize about $120 million from flamboyant Malaysian billionaire Low Taek Jho and his immediate family. A confidant of Prime Minister Najib Razak’s family, the 34-year-old owns two units at the posh TwentyOne Angullia Park along Orchard Boulevard which he bought for S$54 million in 2013, according to an earlier report by the Business Times. One of the units is a 7,718 triplex penthouse which cost S$42.9 million or S$5,560 per sq ft, making it one of the priciest properties sold in Singapore. Low is also the owner of a company called Good Star, which allegedly fraudulently received US$1.03 billion from 1MDB.
