COPS NOT SABOTAGING HUNT FOR JHO LOW, SAYS IGP
Cops working with Interpol to track down fugitive and his father
THE police deny there are elements of sabotage in efforts to track down fugitive businessman Low Taek Jho, or Jho Low. Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said police were working on locating Jho Low’s whereabouts.
“I am not sure who is sabotaging (the investigations). To my knowledge, police are not involved in this.
“We are tracking him and his father, including seeking Interpol’s help, despite technical problems in the early stage.”
Fuzi said they were in direct contact with Interpol to track down Jho Low and his father.
“The latest information we have is that he was in Hong Kong. We sent a team, but he sneaked into Macau and from there, we don’t know where he went.
“We will continue to work with our counterparts to locate him and his father,” Fuzi said on the sidelines of the police force’s National Sports Day celebration at Puteri Harbour Marina here yesterday.
He was commenting on claims that there had been elements of sabotage in the government, which made it difficult to track down Jho Low.
Jho Low is being hunted by the authorities to assist in investigations into the 1Malaysia Development Bhd scandal.
