KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court here was told the Interpol issued a red notice for fugitive businessman Low Taek Jho, also known as Jho Low, on June 11 last year.
Investigating officer Rosli Hussain, 54, of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, said the same notice was also issued for former SRC International Sdn Bhd CEO Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil.
The witness testified on Tuesday (Aug 13) that after the notices were issued, the MACC informed the Bukit Aman National Centre Bureau to distribute it to several countries where the two men might be.

Rosli was testifying in the corruption trial of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, who is accused of misappropriating RM42mil in SRC International funds.
A red notice is issued by the international police in their effort to find and arrest wanted individuals for the purpose of extradition.
The witness said this when he was questioned in the examination-in-chief conducted by Deputy Public Prosecutor Datuk Ishak Mohd Yusoff and added that the authorities revoked the Malaysian passports for Jho Low and Nik Faisal on June 14, 2018 and July 25, 2018 respectively.
"The official information from the Immigration Department stated that Jho Low's last movement was him departing through Terminal Three at Subang Airport on May 29, 2015.
"For Nik Faisal, he departed through KLIA on May 7, 2018, " he added.
