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.
