Former Goldman Sachs Group Inc banker Tim Leissner has been subpoenaed by the US Justice Department in a money laundering probe linked to 1Malaysia Development Bhd, Bloomberg reported. Leissner was issued the subpoena in late February, days before Goldman confirmed that he had parted ways with the US bank, Bloomberg reported, citing people briefed on the matter. Leissner, who was the chairman of Goldman’s Southeast Asia business since mid-2014, helped arrange the sale of US dollar bonds for Malaysian state investor 1MDB, sources told Reuters in February.
