Come back to Malaysia, MACC tells Jho Low

PETALING JAYA: No “Dubai deal” for Jho Low. That is the stand of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

Its chief commissioner Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull said the alleged 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) mastermind must return to Malaysia to assist in the investigation.

“Come back to Malaysia. Why Dubai? He’s a Malaysian, so come back home,” he said.

Mohd Shukri’s comments were in response to a report claiming that Jho Low was willing to meet MACC investigators in Dubai.

He said MACC and enforcement agencies from other countries were still hunting for Low, who has been on the run for three years.

“If any reporters here have information about his whereabouts, please share it with us,” he said.

Last Thursday, anti-graft officers raided a high-end service apartment belonging to Low in Kuala Lumpur.

The team did not find anything significant in the house except for a few bundles of RM100 notes.

In a recent interview with Reuters, former premier Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said he felt Low’s connections in the Middle East, particularly with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, could help attract more investments to Malaysia.

Najib also said he never instructed Low to get involved in 1MDB and had no control over what he did.
