IGP: We are working with China's authorities to track down Jho Low


GENTING HIGHLANDS: Bukit Aman has held talks with China's authorities as part of efforts to track down fugitive financier Low Taek Jho, or Jho Low, who is a wanted man in the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) saga, says Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun.

The Inspector-General of Police said there is no new information or developments in the hunt for Jho Low.

"We have met authorities from China and even held discussions with Interpol.

"However, there is no new information or development," he told a press conference after attending a meeting between the Royal Malaysia Police and the Customs Department on Sunday (Jan 13).

He added that efforts to find Jho Low are still ongoing.

On another matter, the IGP said the investigation papers on the sedition probe involving Umno supreme council member Datuk Lokman Noor Adam have been forwarded to the Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP).

"We will wait for the DPP's decision before going further on the matter," he said.

Lokman was detained on Thursday (Jan 10) after he was called in by Bukit Aman CID in connection with an investigation under Section 4(1) of the Sedition Act.

He was subsequently released on police bail on Friday (Jan 11).

Lokman claimed there was a cover up with regards to the investigation into the murder of Fire and Rescue Department personnel Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim, 24.

Muhammad Adib, of the Subang Jaya fire and rescue station, was seriously injured while on duty during riots at the Seafield Sri Maha Mariamman Temple on Nov 27.

He passed away on Dec 17, and the police reclassified the case as murder.
