Oh Low: MACC issues arrest warrant for elusive financier Jho Low

Things are heating up in the tangled web of bank transactions, luxury real estate, and Miranda Kerr gifts that is the 1MDB fiasco. Currently under questioning by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission are the former prime minister, Najib Razak, and his Birkin-loving wife Rosmah Mansor.

Today, news has hit that the MACC has formally issued an arrest warrant for the former reigning King of the Friendzone, apparent ex-boyfriend of Miranda Kerr, and superyacht squatter, Jho Low.

Let’s play a game: It’s called “Let’s Make a Deal” and it features the MACC and all parties involved desperately trying to save themselves from the inevitable.

Ding! Ding! AFP and Bloomberg are reporting that Low’s lawyers have now contacted the MACC to offer his “cooperation” in the investigation.

Also being sought by the MACC is Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil, one of the directors of SRC International, a unit of 1MDB, while warrants for Goldman Sachs banker, Roger Ng, and ex-1MDB chief, Shahrol Halmi, are being prepared, according to Bloomberg.

This week, Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin told media that enough evidence had been collected by authorities in the 1MDB scandal to charge and prosecute Low.

Not mincing his words, he said: “He is the main criminal behind the scandal, and should be brought to face justice as soon as possible.”

Adding that the public was eager to see justice on the matter he added that action should not be taken to today but “yesterday,” saying: “That’s how angry they [the public] are.”

The Sun states that Low’s last known address in Malaysia was in Penang; however, in recent years he has been spotted across regional waters, floating aboard the nautical monstrosity that is the Equanimity, a yacht he claims isn’t his, but he sure seems to spend a lot of time on.

Honestly, we can’t wait for this to play out and get made into a Netflix series. Juicier that the brisket at Mom’s BBQ.
