KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 2 — The police still do not have positive leads on the location of tycoon Low Taek Jho, the inspector-general of police said today when asking the public to give his force time to trace the fugitive billionaire.

Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun explained that his agency was also awaiting replies from some Interpol member countries to the Red Corner Notice issued for Low, who is also known as Jho Low.

“We have sent the letters out. Some responded, some have not. Some say he is not there.

“Some media reports claim I did not even send out the letter to Interpol, but I have showed you guys (media) the letter few weeks ago.

“So we have to be patient,” he told the press at the Cheras police college here after a seminar with the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam).

Mohamad Fuzi said he has informed seven countries so far through the Interpol Red Notice to seek Low’s whereabouts.

The countries are Hong Kong, Macau, India, Myanmar, China, Indonesia and the United Arab Emirates.

Malaysian police have also asked their Taiwanese counterparts for assistance through a diplomatic note.

Low was reported to have been based in Hong Kong for weeks but escaped to neighbouring Macau early last month when a Malaysian team went to the former British colony in search of him.
