PETALING JAYA: A picture of Tan Kim Loong, who initially was thought to be a name used by Low Taek Jho (Jho Low) for his business transaction in Singapore, has been released by authorities for the first time.
His identity had always been a subject of speculation because banks across the causeway had never seen him although they had communicated with him via emails and other means.
The 40-year-old, also known as Eric Tan, is believed to be the key figure in the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) scandal
He was identified as a signatory for numerous bank accounts in RBS Coutts and Falcon Bank in Singapore of which money from 1MDB accounts was laundered.
Tan together with Jho Low have been wanted men since October 2016.
According to MACC, Tan’s last known address was Taman Pusat Kepong, Kuala Lumpur, and his MyKad number is 780213-14-6207.
The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) yesterday also released pictures of Tang Keng Chee (Casey Tang), 53, Geh Choh Heng (Terence Geh), 47, and Loo Ai Swan (Jasmine Loo), 45.
Tang was an investment executive and pioneer in 1MDB while Geh was an executive director of finance.
Loo was a general counsel and executive director of group strategy.
Tang and Loo have been on the wanted list for a few years now but this is the first time Geh’s name has surfaced.
Authorities have urged all four individuals to come forward or to contact MACC to assist in investigations into 1MDB.
Those who have information of their whereabouts should contact Nur Aida Arifin at 03–8870 0000 (ext: 0323) or Nahar Haris (ext: 0388) or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com respectively.
