Flamboyant businessman Jho Low, along with SRC International Sdn Bhd managing director Nik Faisal Ariff Nik Othman Kamil, and SRC director Suboh Mohd Yassin, have been ordered to appear before the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

The trio is believed to be investigated by the MACC in connection to their dealings involving SRC International, a former subsidiary of troubled state investment fund 1MDB. The company is now under the Finance Ministry.

A travel ban was reportedly issued on Nik Faisal and Suboh, both of whom are said to have gone missing since last month.

Nik Faisal, 44, is believed to have disappeared following reports by The Wall Street Journal and Sarawak Report that RM2.6 billion was deposited in Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's bank accounts from overseas, in addition to RM42 million from SRC through two subsidiaries - Gandingan Mentari and Ihsan Perdana.

It is understood that Nik Faisal is in Indonesia.

Meanwhile, Suboh, 64, was initially said to be prepared to give a statement to the MACC but has gone missing since attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail was removed from his post on July 27.

According to the MACC in a statement today, the three men are required to present themselves in front of the special operations division, which is in charge of the SRC investigation.

They are required to contact the investigating officer in the case - Rosli Husain at 010-318 7757 or 03-8890 0752, or Norkhafizin Isa at 019-600 0345 or 03-8890 0754.

“The MACC implores the public who have information about the three's whereabouts to contact Rosli or Norkhafizan,” said director of investigations Azam Baki.

Nik Faisal’s last known address is at Jalan Tun Teja, Alam Impian, Shah Alam, while Suboh’s last known address is at Jalan Wan Kadir 5, Taman Tun Dr Ismail.

Jho Low, whose full name is Low Taek Jho, 34, is from Tanjung Bungah Park, Penang.

It is learnt that if the three failed to show themselves, a warrant of arrest may be issued for them.
