By Rujun Shen and Yantoultra Ngui SINGAPORE/KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Police in Singapore said on Wednesday they have frozen two bank accounts in connection with an investigation into alleged financial mismanagement and graft at Malaysia's troubled state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB). It was the first time accounts outside Malaysia had been frozen in connection with the investigation, which has left Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak facing his biggest crisis since he took office in 2009. "On 15 July 2015, we issued orders under the Criminal Procedure Code to prohibit any dealings in respect of money in two bank accounts that are relevant to the investigation," Singapore police said in a statement. Police did not identify the banks or the accounts in question because the investigation is continuing. A 1MDB spokesman declined to comment. 1MDB, a property-to-energy group whose advisory board is chaired by Najib, is facing criticism over its debt of nearly 42 billion ringgit (£7.07 billion) and alleged mishandling of its finances. The freezing of the Singapore bank accounts follows a similar move in Malaysia where a task force investigating 1MDB said this month that it had frozen half a dozen bank accounts following a media report that millions of dollars had been transferred to accounts belonging to Najib. The Wall Street Journal reported on July 3 that investigators looking into 1MDB had traced close to $700 million (£448 million) of deposits moving through Falcon Bank in Singapore into the personal account of Najib in Malaysia. Reuters has not verified the Wall Street Journal report. Najib has denied taking any money for personal gain and said the corruption allegations are part of a malicious campaign to force him out of office. A 14-day notice period given to Dow Jones & Co, which publishes the Journal, to respond to a letter from Najib's lawyers seeking clarification, ended on Tuesday. TASK FORCE Singapore's central bank also said it is in contact with financial institutions in relation to the 1MDB investigation and Falcon Bank has said it is co-operating with inquiries. On Tuesday, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) said it was looking into whether banks followed rules on properly identifying customers and their sources of funds and on reporting suspicious transactions. "We're actually looking back to see if they have done all these things," MAS managing director Ravi Menon told a news conference. Malaysian authorities have set up a task force including police, the attorney-general, the central bank and the national anti-corruption agency to look into the 1MDB affair. As part of the investigation, two people have been arrested this week, the Bernama state news agency reported. One of them was identified as the managing director of a company, who was arrested on Tuesday, while the director of a construction company were arrested at Kuala Lumpur's international airport on Monday, Bernama said. Authorities did not identify the two. Separately, two opposition lawmakers who have both been critical of 1MDB said on Wednesday they had been barred from leaving the country. Tony Pua and Rafizi Ramli both said authorities had not given them a reason for the travel ban. Immigration authorities were not immediately available for comment. Earlier, a former newspaper editor seen as close to the ruling party recently alleged that the two had worked with a website to forge documents on 1MDB. The two politicians denied that. The website, Sarawak Report, has published allegations of graft and mismanagement within 1MDB, citing documents from whistleblowers. The site's editor, Clare Rewcastle-Brown, has also denied the accusation. Authorities have blocked her website since Sunday for violating an Internet law.

Malaysia has been rocked for more than a year by a financial scandal involving Prime Minister Najib Razak, a state investment firm, and an alleged frenzy of embezzlement stunning in its scope and complexity. Authorities in a half-dozen countries have launched investigations into suspicions that several billion dollars was looted from complicated financial transactions involving 1MDB and parked around the world. Following are answers to key questions in the affair. What is 1MDB? In 2009, a sovereign wealth fund owned by a northern Malaysian state was rebranded by Najib as 1Malaysia Development Berhad, or 1MDB, and turned into a federal entity focusing on investments in strategic development projects. The fund is owned by the finance ministry, which is headed by Najib. He also chaired the company's advisory board until it was dissolved in May. Its wide-ranging investments have included power plants and other energy assets in Malaysia and the Middle East, as well as major real estate developments in Kuala Lumpur. How did the graft allegations come out? By 2014, concerns began to emerge over reports that 1MDB was more than $11 billion in debt as a result of a massive borrowing spree and a series of opaque overseas acquisitions. Late that year it missed a payment on a nearly $1 billion loan. Though it eventually paid off the loan, its continued debt troubles brought intensifying scrutiny. What are some key allegations? In 2009, 1MDB invested $1 billion in a short-lived joint venture with PetroSaudi Holdings, a Saudi Arabian energy company. Media reports citing emails among players in the deal say they indicate $700 million disappeared from the venture and may have gone to a close Najib family associate, a charge that 1MDB hotly denies. In another instance, Abu Dhabi's sovereign wealth fund this year accused 1MDB of failing to pay back a loan of more than $1 billion. 1MDB insists it repaid the loan, but a Wall Street Journal report said documents show the money was paid to a shadowy British Virgin Islands company unrelated to the Abu Dhabi fund. In April, a Malaysian parliamentary report said 1MDB made more than $4 billion in suspicious payments to the now-dissolved British Virgin Islands company. How is Najib implicated? In July 2015, the Wall Street Journal revealed that Najib had received payments totalling $681 million in his personal bank accounts in 2013. Subsequent reports said the money originated from 1MDB and may have exceeded $1 billion, which 1MDB denies. Najib at first rejected the report as false and threatened legal action, but his government later acknowledged the payments. It (Other OTC: ITGL - news) said earlier this year the funds were a "personal donation" from the Saudi royal family. Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir in April said it was a "genuine donation" but only after weeks of Saudi silence that fuelled doubts about the alibi. The nature of the "donation" has never been fully explained. Najib and 1MDB strongly deny the "donation" came from the company. Has anyone faced justice? Authorities in Switzerland and Singapore have frozen millions in assets on suspicion of 1MDB-related embezzlement and money-laundering, but so far no major figures have been brought to justice. The most notable casualty so far has been Switzerland-based BSI Bank, which Swiss authorities accused of "serious breaches" of money-laundering regulations in its dealings with 1MDB. Swiss regulators last month approved plans for BSI Bank to be taken over by another private banking group and eventually dissolved. A half-dozen countries including the United States are still investigating the affair. What impact has this had on Malaysia? Over the past year, Najib has purged 1MDB critics from his cabinet, curbed domestic investigations, and moved to prevent further discussion of the scandal, sparking accusations he was clamping down to save his skin. As a result, Najib has dramatically strengthened his control of the country. A state-level election and two parliamentary by-elections in recent weeks were won handily by Najib's ruling coalition, further bolstering his position. Analysts say 1MDB looks unlikely to unseat Najib and that the various foreign investigations are so far not expected to touch him due to the carefully constructed complexity of the questionable money flows (Other OTC: UBGXF - news) .
