It was most disappointing to hear that the alleged 1MDB mastermind Low Taek Jho, also known as Jho Low, has slipped out of Macau for an unknown destination. Our authorities have missed him again, after missing him in Hong Kong the previous week.
The police have said they have so far informed seven countries through the Interpol red notice on Jho Low being sought over the 1MDB scandal.
The South China Morning Post has reported that Jho Low is believed to be in China, having travelled from Macau either by car or private jet. Malaysia does not have an extradition treaty or Mutual Legal Assistance Agreement with China. However, an application can be made on bilateral grounds as Malaysia has diplomatic ties with China. It is hoped that our foreign ministry will expedite the request.
I would also like to reiterate the RM100,000 offer to anyone who can bring Jho Low back to Malaysia. The offer is still open, and the sponsor would be most happy to reward the person who brings Jho Low back to face justice due to him.
