PETALING JAYA: A Malaysian citizen has offered RM10,000 as a bounty for anyone who has information on the whereabouts of Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos.
Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng said in a tweet on Monday (June 4) that the person had offered the bounty through him for anyone who had credible information on the Sungai Besar Umno division chief.
Jamal fled police custody after failing to complete his bail process some two weeks ago.
A Chinese daily reported that Jamal has fled to Indonesia and is hiding there.
An arrest warrant was issued for Jamal last Friday (June 1) by the Ampang magistrate's court for the offence of escaping or resisting police custody.
Bukit Aman has contacted Indonesian authorities to seek assistance in tracking him down.
Jamal had earlier promised to present himself to the police on May 30, but failed to do so.
He then released a video of himself at an oil palm plantation where he claimed there was an effort by certain parties to direct the police to frame him at any cost.
He also appealed to the police to give him time to turn himself in.
Jamal has been charged with at least six offences, including creating public nuisance by breaking bottles of alcohol to protest the Better Beer Festival at the Selangor state secretariat building on Oct 5, 2017.
