Royal Malaysia Police met authorities in China to track down Jho Low — IGP


Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun

GENTING HIGHLANDS: The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) have  held a meeting with the authorities in China in the effort to detect businessman Low Taek Jho – or Jho Low, said Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun.

Without divulging details on the meeting, Mohamad Fuzi said currently, Jho Low has not been found and efforts to detect him are still underway.

“The police are also communicating with Interpol and the status is the same,” he said after attending a Royal Malaysian Customs Department-PDRM high-level meeting here yesterday.

Last Thursday, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said the government would continue its effort to find the businessman, although it had been difficult.

Jho Low, who was identified by investigators from Malaysia and the United States as the main character in the multi-billion 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) scandal, is believed to have escaped from detention in Hong Kong to an island near Macau. — Bernama
