Roping in Interpol to assist.
Khairuddin Abu Hassan has met with Interpol officials in Lyon, France to formally request for them to track down Low Taek Jho, or Jho Low, in connection with the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) case.
In a statement on his Facebook page, Khairuddin said that he had held a lengthy discussion with Interpol agents to place Low and former SRC International managing director Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil under its “red alert” watch.
Khairuddin said that the duo should be tracked down so that they can be arrested and returned to Malaysia.
“We know where they are.
“Jho Low must be held responsible for his treachery in the embezzlement of billions of government funds and the people’s money in the 1MDB scandal,” he said.
Khairuddin said both Low and Nik Faisal are “key” in closing the 1MDB case.
“If we manage to bring home Jho Low and Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil, I am very confident that every detail of the 1MDB scandal will be known,” he said.
He described the 1MDB case as the “largest financial scandal in the world” and vowed to do what he can to help the Government to close the 1MDB case.
In the past few months, Khairuddin has been renewing his complaints with several foreign authorities over the 1MDB scandal.
In Australia, he lodged a report against the Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ) for allowing part of some US$700 million from Najib’s personal account to be transferred to Singapore.
In Switzerland, he lodged a report with the Swiss attorney-general in Berne.
Early May, he renewed his report with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in New York.
Khairuddin and his lawyer Matthias Chang were detained under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (Sosma) over his reports on 1MDB with foreign authorities in 2015.
He was accused of sabotaging Malaysia’s economy for lodging reports over 1MDB in Paris, London, Berne, Hong Kong and Singapore.
He was acquitted of the charge last year.
