PASIR MAS: Police have new leads on the whereabouts of Low Taek Jho, better known as Jho Low, Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador said.

He said the police would do their best to bring the fugitive Malaysian businessman, linked to scandal-plagued 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), home as soon as possible.

He said Jho Low had nowhere to hide, and it would be a matter of time before he is brought back to face charges.

The IGP said this after a brief visit to the Kelantan side of the Malaysian-Thailand border yesterday.

Abdul Hamid declined to reveal the new leads they had secured.

He also refused to say if Jho Low was hiding in China.

Abdul Hamid said Jho Low’s actions had plunged the country into debt, adding that the businessman should be held responsible for the mess.

Not mincing his words, the nation’s top cop said Jho Low’s move to hide behind his lawyers in Macau and Hong Kong when making statements is nothing short of cowardice.

Abdul Hamid said bringing Jho Low home to face the charges would expose the scam and lies behind it. — Bernama
