Again, a step ahead of cops, Jho Low seems to be winning in the catch-me-if-you-can game – for now, at least.
Scandal-plagued Jho Low has fled Macau, said Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun.
The Inspector-General of Police said Bukit Aman only received an email from Macau authorities on July 9, informing them that Low had left Macau.
“Two days ago, we were informed that he had left Macau, but to which destination we do not know.
“The email did not specify when Low left Macau.
“It is hard to trace him as he is believed to be using multiple passports,” he told a press conference today.
He added that the latest development will complicate police investigation into 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
He also said that police were in the dark as to Low’s present whereabouts.
Jho Low’s passport was cancelled by the Immigration Department on June 15, following a request from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in relation to their investigations into the 1MDB case.
Yesterday, Fuzi said Malaysia had asked authorities in Macau to detain Low, better known as Jho Low, who was believed to have fled there from Hong Kong.
In June, he said, the Malaysian police had issued an Interpol red notice for the businessman.
“We hope the respective countries will give us their feedback. We will take immediate action if these countries inform us of his exact whereabouts.”
According to media reports, the Royal Malaysia Police sent a team to take Jho Low back from Hong Kong but found that upon arrival he had fled to Macau.
