Go ahead, take legal action, IGP tells Azmin

    Inspector-general of police Khalid Abu Bakar has no qualms if Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali were to take legal action against him.
    This, after an official letter of demand, was sent to the top cop to pursue and extradite controversial businessperson Low Taek Jho, or Jho Low as he is widely known, over alleged involvement in offences under the Penal Code linked to the 1MDB financial scandal.
    "Investigations into 1MDB is still ongoing so I do not want to respond to the demand.
    "So, go ahead, take legal action. I'll wait for it," Khalid said in a press conference at the Royal Malaysia Police College in Kuala Lumpur today.
    Lawyer Latheefa Koya yesterday said that the IGP has 14 days to respond to the demand, failing which, Azmin will file the necessary action in court.
    Latheefa explained that Azmin had instructed his lawyers to issue the notice with regard to taking steps to secure the arrest and extradition of Low to Malaysia with the help of Interpol as Low has been suspected of committing various offences under the Penal Code.
    The lawyer also said the demand was made as it is believed that no steps have so far been taken to secure his presence in Malaysia.
    According to the letter of demand, Low is suspected of involvement in a criminal breach of trust under Section 406 or Section 409 of the Penal Code, as well as going against provisions of the Anti-Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing Act 2001.
    Low, whose whereabouts remain unknown, is closely linked to the 1MDB scandal which saw billions of ringgit in funds allegedly siphoned off by certain individuals.
    He has denied the claims directed at him.
    Meanwhile, Khalid refused to respond when asked whether investigation papers have been opened based on police reports lodged against Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi for exposing former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad's personal data.

    "I have already answered one question not related to the Sea Games. (Let's) focus on the Sea Games.
    "I don't want to answer other questions," he said, annoyance etched on his face.
    Former Umno division leader Khairuddin Abu Hassan was among those who lodged police reports against Zahid for "abusing" Mahathir's personal data after the deputy premier claimed he was sent a copy of Mahathir's supposed identity card by the National Registration Department director-general stating his name as "Mahathir a/l Iskandar Kutty". - Mkini
