The foreign ministry is ready to assist in bringing Low Taek Jho, popularly known as Jho Low, back to the country if his location has been identified, says minister Hishammuddin Hussein.

The Sembrong MP said there was no reason for the ministry to do otherwise if it was told the location of the fugitive businessman by the police.

Up until now, he said, Jho Low’s whereabouts could not be ascertained, including the possibility that he is in China, as claimed by RSN Rayer (PH-Jelutong) when interjecting in his winding-up speech on the Supply Bill 2021 at the Dewan Rakyat today.

“Firstly, we don’t know whether or not he is in China. Secondly, if the police inform Wisma Putra of his exact location, there is no reason why Wisma Putra cannot assist in bringing him back to be brought to justice,” he said.

Responding to Khoo Poay Tiong (PH-Kota Melaka) on allegations that Malaysian students were not allowed to return to their campuses in China even though the learning session has started, Hishammuddin said the issue would be discussed with the higher education ministry.

“On our part, we will continue to communicate and discuss with China on matters pertaining to these students,” he said.

On Rohingya refugees and UNHCR cardholders in the country, Hishammuddin reiterated that efforts to repatriate or relocate them to a third country remained Wisma Putra’s top priority.

“We will continue to give priority through the Asean platform so that Myanmar will implement the suggestions together with UNHCR because previously, we accepted these refugees on UNHCR’s guarantee that they would be relocated to third countries.

“We will use various platforms such as bilateral platforms with Bangladesh and Myanmar, regional ones with Asean, multilateral ones with the United Nations and countries of the same stand as us like Indonesia to find a solution to Rohingya issues,” he said.
