DPM Zahid denies Malaysia now seeking Interpol help over Jho Low's whereabouts

DPM Zahid denies Malaysia now seeking Interpol help over Jho Low's whereabouts”

Deputy Prime Minister Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi reiterated that there are no more cases against Low Taek Jho.

Low, a family friend of Najib, allegedly helped establish 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) and took key decisions.

"On this case, we have asked Interpol to find the individual..."

Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi on Monday (Oct 23) denied reports that Malaysian police are now asking Interpol to try to locate financier Jho Low for questioning over his suspected involvement in a multi-billion dollar scandal at state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB). "That is so untrue", the statement said.

The police have closed their investigation into Malaysian millionaire Low Taek Jho or Jho Low, deputy prime minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said today.

Reports said Zahid was responding to a question from Azmin in the Dewan Rakyat this morning.

Azmin asked where the home ministry stood on the matter, and Zahid revealed that Interpol had been contacted for assistance on locating the ephemeral banker (which, btw, would be a great name for your memoirs, Mr Low).

1MDB, founded by Prime Minister Najib Razak, is facing money laundering probes in at least six countries including the United States, Switzerland and Singapore.

The question of Interpol's role in locating Low was first raised in in 2015.

I have brought this up a few months ago, in which police should get Interpol's help to locate or determine the location of Jho Low, who has been mentioned in many global reports as being involved in the financial and business crimes.

Low is accused in the lawsuits of using 1MDB-linked funds to buy Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio a $3.2 million Picasso painting, and giving about $9 million in jewellery to Australian model Miranda Kerr.
