IGP: We are work­ing with au­thor­i­ties in China to track down Jho Low

The Star Malaysia - - Nation -

GENT­ING HIGH­LANDS: Bukit Aman has held talks with au­thor­i­ties in China as part of its ef­forts to track down fugi­tive fi­nancier Low Taek Jho, or Jho Low, who is a wanted man in the 1Malaysia De­vel­op­ment Bhd (1MDB) saga, says Tan Sri Mo­hamad Fuzi Harun.

The In­spec­tor-Gen­eral of Po­lice said there is no new in­for­ma­tion or de­vel­op­ment in the hunt for Jho Low.

“We have met au­thor­i­ties from China and even held dis­cus­sions with In­ter­pol,” he told a press con­fer­ence after at­tend­ing a meet­ing be­tween the Royal Malaysia Po­lice and the Cus­toms Depart­ment yes­ter­day.

He added, how­ever, that ef­forts to find Jho Low are still on­go­ing.

On an­other mat­ter, the IGP said the in­ves­ti­ga­tion pa­pers on the sedi­tion probe in­volv­ing Umno supreme coun­cil mem­ber Datuk Lok­man Noor Adam have been for­warded to the Deputy Pub­lic Prose­cu­tor (DPP).

Lok­man was de­tained on Thurs­day after he was called in by Bukit Aman CID in con­nec­tion with an in­ves­ti­ga­tion un­der the Sedi­tion Act.

He was re­leased on po­lice bail on Fri­day.

Lok­man had claimed that there was a cover up with re­gards to the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the mur­der of Fire and Res­cue Depart­ment per­son­nel Muham­mad Adib Mohd Kas­sim, 24.

Muham­mad Adib, of the Subang Jaya fire and res­cue sta­tion, was se­ri­ously in­jured while on duty dur­ing ri­ots at the Seafield Sri Maha Mari­amman Tem­ple on Nov 27.

He passed away on Dec 17, and the po­lice re­clas­si­fied the case as mur­der.

The po­lice had an­nounced they had com­pleted their in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the death of the fire­fighter and the in­ves­ti­ga­tion pa­pers had al­ready been sent to the DPP’s of­fice for fur­ther ac­tion.
