The Public Accounts Committee has summoned business tycoon Low Taek Jho to appear before it on Sept 8 to testify on the 1MDB scandal.

PAC chief Nur Jazlan Mohamad said the committee sent the summons letter to the Finance Ministry yesterday.

"They should know his whereabouts or be able to trace him... It can get the police to locate him," he told The Star today.

As to how the MOF intends to trace Low, Jur Jazlan said, "is not the PAC's problem".

The businessman, popularly known as Jho Low, is also wanted by the special task force investigating 1MDB.

Besides Jho Low, Nur Jazlan said the PAC also summoned the directors of Brazen Sky, a company that 1MDB had invested RM6 billion in, to appear before it on Sept 9.

The committee is investigating allegations of financial misappropriation by the sovereign wealth fund that is wholly owned by the Finance Ministry.

It has already questioned 1MDB's auditors, and will meet its past and present chiefs, Shahrol Halmi and Arul Kanda, on Aug 4 and 5 respectively.

It will also meet with 1MDB's board of directors on Aug 17.
