IGP: Malaysians should be patient while waiting for Jho Low's arrest


KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysians should be patient when waiting for the arrest of fugitive businessman Low Taek Jho, said Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador.

The Inspector-General of police urged for patience as he claimed police are moving closer and closer to capturing the businessman, who is better known as Jho Low.

“We know where he is and we will get him soon. It is only a matter of time,” he said at a press conference on Monday.

Abdul Hamid was speaking to the press after handing road safety brochures to motorists at the Gombak toll plaza in conjunction with Hari Raya Op Selamat 15.

“I urge everyone on the roads to be safe and alert.

“Please follow all traffic laws and don’t drive if you are tired,” he said.

Last Saturday, Abdul Hamid dismissed a viral message on social media claiming that Jho Low had been arrested.

The viral message claimed that Jho Low had been arrested by the Chinese authorities and will be brought back to Malaysia.

Abdul Hamid said the Royal Malaysia Police gave the assurance to Jho Low that it is safe for him to return to Malaysia to face the law.

Last Thursday, he said that Jho Low is expected to be arrested soon and the police are confident of bringing him back to the country to face justice.

He had also said that the police have new leads on the whereabouts of Jho Low
