TTF: I was told previously that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Daim Zainuddin were in communication with Jho Low and even had a Skype session with him.
Now, we’re being told that the police knows where the billionaire is hiding.
If indeed that’s true, I suggest that PDRM expedites his arrest so that we can get to the bottom of things.
This issue has been dragging on for far too long, and we’re all getting tired of it.
KUALA LUMPUR: Police received new information a few days ago on the whereabouts of fugitive businessman Low Taek Jho.
Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the new information had helped the authorities pinpoint the location of the wanted man, who is popularly known as Jho Low.
“A few days ago, I received the latest information (on Jho Low’s whereabouts). We know where he is.
“We will need cooperation from certain parties at the country where he (Jho Low) is,” he said, adding that there was still risk of the businessman moving to a new location to evade the authorities.
Muhyiddin was speaking during a winding-up speech on the 11th Malaysia Plan (11MP) Mid-Term Review (MTR) at the Dewan Rakyat this afternoon.
He was answering a question from RSN Rayer (PH-DAP-Jelutong) on the need for the police to exhaust all efforts to track down Jho Low, even down to ‘lubang cacing’ (worm hole) if needed, to uncover the businessman’s role in the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) scandal.
With regards to Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein’s (BN-Umno-Sembrong) offer to help bring back Jho Low to Malaysia, Muhyiddin said he had no idea how the former defence minister would do it.
“We in Putrajaya have not been contacted by him (Hishammuddin),” he said over the offer, adding that this was confirmed by Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
With regards to businessman Deepak Jaikishan’s recent online interview where he alleged former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak (BN-Umno-Pekan) and his wife being involved in the murder of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu, Muhyiddin said the authorities had taken note of it.
“At the police level, if this is regarded as new evidence and information, then we can take action.
“If investigations require the names mentioned (Najib and Rosmah) to be probed, then the police will take appropriate action,” he said.
During Parliament debate on the 11MP MTR yesterday, Ramkarpal Singh (PH-DAP-Bukit Gelugor) had urged the police to take statements from Najib and Rosmah regarding investigation into Altantuya’s murder, following Deepak’s revelation.
Muhyiddin today reiterated the government’s commitment to catch Jho Low was not to be trifled with as Malaysians were awaiting the outcome of the search, which was a major issue.
“Apart from those willing to help the police (to track down Jho Low), through sources and certain organisations in the police, (we) will continue efforts (to catch Jho Low),” he said.
“Even down to ‘lubang cacing’ we will find and catch Jho Low, to bring him to trial and resolve the 1MDB issue,” he said.
