KUALA LUMPUR: The application to list an individual on the Interpol notice list depends on their protocol and has to first undergo a thorough internal (vetting) process.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said this in a statement here Wednesday (Sept 19), referring to a report in news portal Utusan Malaysia titled "Jho Low, father not in Interpol's list” published yesterday (Sept 18).
He also explained that based on the same protocol, Interpol would also determine whether the name listed would be shown for public consumption or just to the relevant authorities.
“The Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) does not want any confusion that could lead to a misperception on the action taken by the authorities on Low Taek Jho and his father,” he said.
On Aug 24, the Putrajaya Sessions Court had issued a warrant of arrest against fugitive businessman Low Taek Jho, better known as Jho Low, and his father, Tan Sri Low Hock Peng, to assist in the investigation into the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal. -Bernama
