1MDB Scandal: Malaysia seek to arrest Jho Low

8th Jun 2018

The Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has issued arrest warrants for Mr Nik Faisal and Mr Low Taek Jho (‘Jho Low’) after the MACC failed to contact them yesterday regarding their ongoing investigation into the 1MBD scandal. Despite not holding an official role at 1MBD, Mr Low is known as a central figure in the ongoing investigation into the misappropriation of public funds worth almost $3.5bn. The Malaysian Prime Minister, Mr Mahathir Mohamad, has explained that the Malaysian government have located Mr Low, but he is in a country that does not share an extradition treaty with Malaysia. Mr Mohamad failed to disclose Mr Low’s location.
