KUALA LUMPUR – Bukit Aman will not give up on tracking Low Taek Jho or Jho Low. Various efforts have been mobilised to bring the fugitive back to face justice.
Inspector-General of Police, Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador said, he has been working to bring Jho Low back to Malaysia since last year although it was futile.
“I am still working to reach that goal.
“I admit that I have failed but it does not mean that the efforts to bring him back will cease,” said Abdul Hamid in an interview.
According to him, the police knows where Jho Low is hiding but there are certain restrictions which hinder the police from bringing the fugitive businessman home.
“Some foreign news reported recently that Jho Low is in Kuwait, but, that was in 2016.
“If he is truly brave, he needs to come out from his hiding,” said the Inspector-General of Police.
Abdul Hamid said, he will not surrender in the search for Jho Low, the former Managing Director of SRC International Sdn Bhd, Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil along with several other individuals.
“Because of him and several other people, the country is laden with debts,” Abdul Hamid said, adding that the police are working behind the scene to recover the stolen monies and to extradite Jho Low.
He also rejected the allegations that Jho Low has a lot of money and could easily shut him down by dishing out bribes.
“I cannot be bought because my mission is to serve the people and the country.
“The efforts to bring him back to face justice will carry on,” he said.
Earlier, Abdul Hamid vowed to bring Jho Low, the individual implicated with the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal home by the end of last year.
However, the authorities faced various challenges and did not receive the cooperation from a ‘foreign country’ believed to be hiding Jho Low.
He also slammed that country for their insincerity which made it difficult for the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) to arrest Jho Low.
Jho Low, Nik Faisal, Eric Tan Kim Loong, Casey Tang, Jasmine Loo and Geh Choh Heng are among the individuals wanted by the PDRM since 2015 to assist into the investigation of the 1MDB scandal. –MalaysiaGazette
