Malaysia’s Wanted Father and Son

Malaysian police said Friday they are filing a red notice application with Interpol to arrest fugitive financier Jho Low and his father Larry Low Hock Peng and have them extradited to Malaysia to face prosecution. Finally.

Inspector-General of Police Mohamad Fuzi Harun said the duo were charged in absentia on August 24, 2018 under the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorism Financing Act 2001 in connection to the 1MDB case. 

Police had also obtained an arrest warrant against both men. 

The Edge Markets reported that Jho Low was hit with eight charges relating to the movement of hundreds of millions of US dollars in BSI Bank in Singapore. His father was also charged under the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorism Financing Act for transferring $56 million to his son. 

Jho Low is reportedly residing in China and Malaysia does not have an extradition treaty with China. Didn't PM Mahathir Mohamad raise the matter with Chinese authorities when he was there?

Liverpool labored to their third victory in another EPL match – this time against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday. 

I had expected the former to yield more goals but they were luckless. Even so, they didn’t disguise the fact that their play could be improved – the Reds lacked cleverness, creativity and sharpness. 

Okay lah, they did prevail over the Seagulls – and they earned the precious 3 points from Mo Salah’s goal in the twenty-third minute. 

Three wins out of three this season so far. And they’re sitting atop the table with nine points. I shouldn't complain.
