IGP: Formal request sent to Macau for team to arrest Jho Low

KUALA LUMPUR: Police here have sent an official request to their counterparts in Macau for a team to be sent in to arrest controversial businessman Low Taek Jho (pic), also known as Jho Low.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said they have already sent a written request to Macau for help and are waiting for a response from them.

"We were initially alerted that he was in Hong Kong and we sent a team there to bring him home.

"When we arrived there however, we learnt that he had left by ferry to Macau," he told reporters after attending the Koperasi Polis annual general meeting here on Tuesday (July 10).

He said they had previously requested seven countries, including China, to be put on alert over on the matter.
