MACC not revealing steps to nab Jho Low


MACC will not reveal the steps it is taking to locate fugitive financier Low Taek Jho (photo, above), also widely-known as Jho Low, to facilitate investigations into the 1MDB scandal, says MACC chief commissioner Latheefa Koya.

"As for strategies, and for the purpose of securing evidence, we cannot tell you the actual steps," she said today in her first press conference since assuming the post of MACC chief on June 1.

On June 7, 2018, MACC issued an arrest warrant for Jho Low to assist investigations into the 1MDB case.

"If we are close enough (to getting Jho Low), I can't tell you until we get him.

“Every time we go and announce that 'Jho Low is in Macau' and ‘we will come after you', that doesn’t really help, does it?” she added.

Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is facing a slew of corruption charges in relation to the 1MDB scandal.
