A Singaporean court jailed the former branch manager of Falcon Private Bank Jens Sturzenegger for 28 weeks and fined him S$128,000 (US$89,100) on charges arising from a probe into suspicious fund flows linked to Malaysian state investment fund 1MDB, Bloomberg reported.

In sentencing the Swiss banker, the judge said Sturzenegger engaged in “persistent, deceitful conduct in lying” to the authorities, Bloomberg said.
