Report: IGP says Jho Low hiding in Macau, protected by Beijing

Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador has reportedly confirmed the whereabouts of fugitive financier Low Taek Jho or Jho Low, believed to be hiding in Macau.

(MMO) – Utusan Malaysia reported him saying that the flamboyant businessman and his family members have also been moving freely in Hong Kong, adding that the Chinese government is allegedly protecting the latter.

“Efforts to bring Jho Low home has been ongoing for a long time, however until now, there has not been any convincing responses from the republic.

“Jho Low entered Macau after being traced to his location in Thailand. Two days before the announcement of the results of the 14th general election, Jho Low was still here, but fled to the neighbouring state after the results were announced,” he reportedly said.

Abdul Hamid also reportedly felt “as if the Chinese government was being insincere” in the joint operation with its Malaysian counterpart to extradite Low, resulting in the process not being carried out to date.
