Singaporean prosecutors are said to have opened new channels of investigation against the former BSI wealth planner as the fallout from the 1 Malaysia Development Berhad fund scandal rumbles on.

Yeo Jiawei who was hit with a seventh set of charges one week ago has been remanded in custody for another 7 days.
 

A judge yesterday granted the prosecution's request to remand Yeo for another week as reported by the Straits Times.

Yeo has become a key figure in the case which has also pulled in the regulators from the U.S.A., Switzerland and the United Kingdom. He has now been held in remand for more than 30 days.

The prosecution is said to be preparing further charges as it trawls through what it says are massive amounts of documents.
