Speaking at a press conference in Putrajaya, Mahathir, however, revealed a snag in the process as Malaysia did not have existing extradition arrangements with the undisclosed country where Low is believed to be hiding.

“We are trying to arrest Jho Low but he is not in the country (Malaysia) and we don’t have extradition rights in the country where he is staying,” said Mahathir when asked to confirm reports that an arrest warrant had been issued for Low.

Citing sources, Bloomberg also reported that the MACC is also preparing arrest warrants against former 1MDB chief executive officer Shahrol Halmi, and former Goldman Sachs banker Roger Ng.

Earlier today, the MACC had issued a notice urging Low and Nik Faisal to come forward and assist with investigations into SRC International, a former 1MDB subsidiary.
