Jho Low asks US to explain Malaysian thanks for seized yacht

(The Edge) – Lawyers for Jho Low want the US to explain why Malaysia is thanking it profusely for helping to seize his US$250 million yacht after the Justice Department has said it wasn’t involved in turning over the vessel.

The lawyers, who represent the companies that hold title to Low’s yacht, on Thursday asked a federal judge in Los Angeles to order the Justice Department to provide a “thorough clarification” whether US agencies or officials knew in advance or were involved in transferring the “Equanimity” to Malaysia.
