China will sell Jho Low in exchange for projects

(Edge Malaysia) – Malaysian officials are expecting China to negotiate hard over suspended infrastructure deals and believe Beijing sees fugitive financier Jho Low as a bargaining chip and won’t hand him over easily, the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reported.

In a report published today, WSJ said Malaysian officials believe China has been harbouring one of the world’s most-wanted financial fugitives alleged to be at the centre of the US$4.5 billion theft from 1Malaysia Development Bhd.
