Wanted businessman Jho Low has not given up his quest seeking immunity from the government.
According to Council of Eminent Persons (CEP) chairman Tun Daim Zainuddin, Low tried to reach out to him only last week.
“He did not call me but he called an officer of mine last week,” Daim told Astro Awani in an interview excerpt from a special programme titled ‘Perspective Tun Daim’ on Wednesday (Oct 31).
“He has lots of money and he can do anything, change his face and so on. We don’t know,” Daim said.
He added that Low made many requests, including wanting to meet him and Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Daim told Astro Awani he had two requests for Low – one was for him to return to Malaysia and the other was for him to give names.
“He kept quiet. I said you cannot deliver, so why should I talk to you?” he said.
It is not clear who were these individuals sought by Daim.
Low is wanted for his role in the multibillion-dollar scandal at state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
His whereabouts are currently unknown, but there is speculation that he might be in China.
