BENGALURU: A settlement with Goldman Sachs Group over its role in the 1MDB corruption scandal should include a guilty plea at the parent company level, the US Department of Justice (DoJ) has recommended, according to a Financial Times report on Wednesday.

The internal recommendation by prosecutors is now being considered by senior officials at the DoJ, FT said, citing people familiar with the matter.

Goldman’s shares fell 1.5% following the report.
