U.S. files complaint seeking to recover stolen 1MDB funds

WASHINGTON, June 15 (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department on Thursday announced the filing of complaints seeking to recover about $540 million in funds taken from the 1Malaysia Development Berhad sovereign wealth fund, the latest legal action tied to alleged money-laundering at the scandal-tainted fund.
