Failure To Bring Back Jho Low – Liar Hishammuddin Never Had Any Special Relationship With Beijing

On 22 October 2018, former defence minister Hishammuddin Hussein boastfully said he will use his personal connections with Beijing to help to track down and repatriate fugitive businessman Jho Low (real name: Low Taek Jho) from China. Jho Low was partner-in-crime of former Prime Minister Najib Razak, who happens to be Hishammuddin’s cousin.


Of course, nobody believed Hishammuddin’s fairy tales except probably then-Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad. Fresh from a stunning defeat in the May 2018 General Election, the UMNO parliamentarian was trying to apple polish the 93-year-old premier after his once invincible political party lost power for the first time in 61 years since independence in 1957.


Conveniently, the cousin of Najib made the offer after a frustrated Mahathir blamed internal “sabotage” within the government as among the reasons why Jho Low had managed to evade arrest. The PM was referring to how Najib’s partner in the 1MDB scandal managed to escape at the very last minute just as authorities reached Hong Kong to apprehend Jho Low.

1MDB Crook Jho Low and Liar Hishammuddin Hussein

Apparently, thanks to a tip-off from corrupt government insiders who were still loyal to crooked Najib Razak, fugitive Jho Low fled to Macau to evade arrest in Hong Kong, after which he escaped to mainland China via a private jet. Clearly, neither Hong Kong nor Macau was interested in helping Malaysia track down the cash-rich Mr. Low, let alone arrest him.


After the collapse of Najib-led Barisan Nasional coalition in 2018, Singapore claimed that Hong Kong had turned down its request in 2016 to arrest Low Taek Jho. Singapore said – “We issued a warrant of arrest for Low in April 2016, following investigations and charges against him for offences of money-laundering and dishonestly receiving stolen property.”


In fact, Singapore said the arrest warrant and an Interpol red notice against Low have been in force since 2016. On top of Hong Kong, Malaysia has also applied for an Interpol red notice to seek assistance from the United Arab Emirates, Indonesia, India, Myanmar and China. But prior to the defeat of despicable Najib, the so-called businessman Low was practically untouchable.

1MDB - Jho Low and Najib Razak

It was only in June 2018, after Najib lost to Mahathir, that Jho Low’s Malaysian passport was cancelled by the new Pakatan Harapan government. But it didn’t affect the fugitive, who possessed dozens of other passports, including one issued by the St Kitts and Nevis government. Cash-rich Low could buy or bribe his way in and out, and move to another country using genuine or fake documentation.


The U.S.-DOJ investigation results says that over US$4.5 billion was misappropriated from the 1MDB fund, with some of the money used to finance Hollywood films, and buy hotels, private jet, luxury Equanimity superyacht, Picasso paintings, jewellery and real estate. More than US$700 million (hence the infamous RM2.6 billion) from the fund landed in Najib’s bank account.


Even after his St Kitts and Nevis passport was “deactivated” due to public uproar, the fugitive continued to travel in style, evading authorities. There were speculations that he also has passports from Thailand, and even Australia and New Zealand. He reportedly owned real estate in Melbourne and Sydney, and some NZ$265 million worth of assets held in trusts in New Zealand.

Jho Low had freely visited Thailand at least five times in 2016-2018 despite an Interpol “Red Notice”. His late grandfather – Low Meng Tak – used to own iron-ore mining and liquor distilleries in the country. It was his grandfather’s vast businesses and investments in Thailand back in the 1960s and 1970s that saw the well-connected Low family own land and property there.


Armed with wealthy Thai friends and even very powerful politicians, Low was untouchable in Thailand. The Penang-born chubby Jho Low reportedly had lived in Macau, Shanghai and Bangkok between March and April 2018 before being spotted in Phuket, from where he monitored Malaysia’s 14th General Election closely. When Najib lost, he immediately fled to Macau and Taiwan.


So, how could a “powerless” opposition Hishammuddin influence top Chinese leaders to track down and bring back Jho Low to Malaysia when even the Government of Malaysia under Mahathir failed to use diplomatic channel to ask for help? Obviously, Hishammuddin’s offer to help was merely rhetoric and an empty promise to stop his own past corruptions from being investigated.

Hishammuddin Hussein with Keris

Months later in March 2019, the racist man who used to threaten minority ethnic Chinese and Indians by brandishing and kissing the “Keris” (a Malay dagger) insisted his offer was still valid. He said – “My offer is still on. It’s not as easy as it involves third parties and governments. I want to find the truth about 1MDB. I’ve been consistent with that and I want to do my part.”


Of course, he made the offer – again – only after then-Deputy Defence Minister Liew Chin Tong revealed that Hishammuddin’s former aides in the Ministry of Defence (Mindef) were involved in a land-swap deal that caused losses amounting to RM500 million. The scandal involved 16 land swap projects involving 1,286 hectares of Mindef’s land worth RM4.756 billion.


A year later (March 2020), the legitimate and democratically voted Pakatan Harapan government collapsed. Mahathir’s lieutenant Muhyiddin Yassin betrayed his own government, working hand-in-glove with opposition UMNO and PAS Islamist party to form a backdoor Malay centric government known as Perikatan Nasional. The crooks were brought back to power.

Hishammuddin Hussein with cousin Najib Razak

Mr Hishammuddin Hussein, appointed as Foreign Minister, received praise from the empty vessel Inspector General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador. Welcoming the cousin of a crook, the top police chief ignorantly said the Royal Malaysia Police was confident the experienced Hishammuddin would continue to help bring back Jho Low – the country’s most wanted man.


But despite his portfolio as the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Hishammuddin has done virtually nothing ever since. The last time he was grilled about the status of the fugitive was in November 2020. When asked by the opposition in Parliament, he cooked up a new excuse – Jho Low can only be brought home if the police are able to provide his exact location in China.


That was as good as saying the police will not be able to solve a crime if the public is unable to pinpoint the exact hideout of bank robbers. Essentially, the useless Hishammuddin Hussein was saying that his ministry would sit on its hands until the Royal Malaysia Police can tell the approximate latitude and longitude of Jho Low’s current hiding place.

Jho Low The 1MDB Pirate - Bersih Demonstration

The hilarious part – it was Hishammuddin who bragged and promised back in Oct 2018 that he was willing “to go to the ends of the earth” to look for Low. Today, more than 2 years later, despite having returned to the government, albeit being a backdoor foreign minister, the same man somehow has lost interest in hunting down the mastermind behind 1MDB scandal.


Exactly why can’t the Foreign Minister leverage on his self-proclaimed “special personal connections” with Beijing now to track the criminal, when he could do so in 2018? With the highly secretive Chinese intelligence organization like the MSS (Ministry of State Security), artificial intelligence surveillance and facial recognition technology, do you think Beijing does not know the location of Jho Low?


It is not the job of the local police force to tell its Chinese counterpart the precise location of Malaysian fugitive Jho Low in China, Hong Kong or Macau. It’s the job of the Chinese authorities to help locate a foreign criminal or suspect when requested, provided both countries enjoy good relations, which Malaysia do enjoy based on Hishammuddin’s claim.

Asked when he would meet with Chinese leaders, Hishammuddin said in October 2018 – “Soon. I have been working on that already. We want justice. We want closure. And if it is true that he is in China, then I’ll use the networking that I have to ensure that he comes back and faces justice. Personally, I want to see an end to the 1MDB issue. We need to get justice and we want an end to the issue.”


News agency Al Jazeera last reported Jho Low, dubbed the “Billion Dollar Whale” by the Wall Street Journal, to be hiding in a house owned by a senior member of the Chinese Communist Party in Macau since February 2018. And the crook was able to travel around the world with little resistance due to “high-level government assistance”.


It’s amazing that while Najib and even Goldman Sachs have been brought down, fugitive Low continues to fly from Bangkok to Dubai, Kuwait, Hong Kong, Macau, Shanghai, Ahmedabad, Grenada and whatnot. It’s humiliating that Beijing appears to value Jho Low more than Hishammuddin Hussein. What happens to the China-Malaysia bilateral ties under Muhyiddin regime?

Since Fat Jho can evade, outdo, outsmart, and beat our hapless and useless gomen, it won’t be a bad idea putting him up for election as a PM. He is better than all our clown monkeys in gomen, vastly better educated, and definitely well-connected, he would certainly make the grade than all our politicians can’t in a million years.

He’s got a nicer sense of style too, he doesn’t use bad tailors and funny colours like all our politicians do.

And he’s got good taste in art etc maybe good advisors who tell him where to put our money in, none of our kampong longkang monkeys are like our overfed fellow. I won’t execute him if I grab hold of him, I’ll squeeze every sen out of him, and maybe ask him where to park my money.

Unlike our moron vindictive bloodthirsty monkeys eager to chop his limbs off, I’ll use him like the blessed accountant in “Shawshank Redemption”. I would have his politician accomplices made shariah limbless, and hanged, though, Alhamdulilah, Ameen.

If any of our gomens had wanted to, it can hire the service of bounty hunters to bring our jolly fat fella back. We can never expect or hope the useless monkeys in law or law enforcement to bring Old Jho in. Our Keystone Kops already know Jho is in Dubai, China, and Macau – all at the same time! And it’s said our top copper even knows as much “The Whale” has even got a face-lift. So who have we got that’s been following Jho around who couldn’t grab him – or even harpoon him? It could be our own Mossad with agents with slippery sweaty hands full of palm oil who religiously drink it five times a day.

For what we know, or more likely not, Fat Jho could even have been in Malaysia all this time and laughing his fat butt off at everyone who cannot apprehend him and can say forever he’s going to be grabbed one fine day, and before he dies from living too well.

I think it’s more than likely there is the hope he’d never be grabbed, Old Jho is no average Malaysian (meaning fcuking stupid), if caught he’d squeal like a fat pig and let in on too much that’s not going to be comfortable for his accomplices and even handlers. Fancy so many police forces around the world and a whale cannot be caught or even seen! Ain’t that weird even by Malaysian standards?

We all know a pig ain’t halal and a pig that ain’t halal is a mighty dangerous one. Frankly, for that money, any where else in the world, the police chief etc would have been screamed at, sacked, and the gomen would have fallen with a thunderous crash.

But, fcuk me, we are called Malaysiaboleh, and the gomens we had and have called fcuking corrupt and useless!
