Wanted by MACC, but cannot be located

KUALA LUMPUR: Three prominent Malaysian businessmen sought to assist investigations of fraud, mismanagement and corruption in 1MDB and related companies, are no longer in the country.
Members of the investigating team of the Special Task Force have been unable to locate Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil and Datuk Suboh Mohd Yassin. They were supposed to have given statements over various transactions linked to the private banking account supposedly belonging to the Prime Minister.
Sources close to the task force said intelligence reports suggest one of them is in Indonesia while the other could not be traced.
They have also sought to locate businessman Low Taek Jho, or Jho Low to assist in their probe. He is reportedly operating out of Hong Kong.
All three are required to assist in providing information on the transfer of funds from a former 1MDB subsidiary – SRC International Sdn Bhd – which is now a unit directly under the Finance Ministry.
(SRC had borrowed RM4 billion from the the public retirement fund Kumpulan Wang Persaraan (KWAP) in 2011.) - TheSun 

BNM issues 'wanted' poster for former 1MDB execs

PETALING JAYA: Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) is seeking for two individuals to assist in investigations under the Exchange Control Act 1953 in relation to the ongoing probe into 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
In a posting on its Facebook page today, BNM released a "wanted" poster, requesting the public to come forward, should they have information on Casey Tang Keng Chee, 50 and Jasmine Loo Ai Swan, 42.
It urged those with any information on the duo to contact BNM at 03-26988044 ext: 8554 / 7610 or lodge a report at the nearest police station.
Tang is a former executive director of 1MDB and was alleged to have worked with tycoon Low Taek Jho and top executives of PetroSaudi International to get 1MDB to subscribe to US$500 million (RM1.9 billion) of murabaha notes.
Some US$260 million of this money from 1MDB was used by Low to buy UBG Bhd, according to a report by The Edge Weekly.
The report, published on June 7, said that Tang and 1MDB chief investment officer Nik Faisal Nik Kamil were actively working with PetroSaudi and Low in the UBG takeover. 
Loo joined 1MDB in 2011 to replace Tang. - TheSun
1. Are the above 'fugitives' still WANTED to assist the relevant authorities in the probe into 1MDB / SRC & other related companies linked to 1MDB-SRC-Najib SCANDAL? 

2. If they are still WANTED why is it that almost everyone tasked with locating these 'fugitives' are keeping mum? 

3. If the Royal Malaysian Police could obtain a warrant of arrest against Claire Brown of the Sarawak Report and immediately seek the help of Aseanapol and Interpol to nab her, WHY the apparent silence or perceived non-action against the 'fugitives' above? 

4. Which of the two cases (Claire Brown) or the 1MDB/SRC/Najib scandal is more important and is believed to have caused/having the risk of incurring losses amounting to Billion of Ringgit in Government funds? Could we please get our priorities right.

5. There has been widespread talk (rumours/hearsay/cigar-bar gossip/anonymous comments in blogs) that at least two of the THREE wanted guys are in Indonesia, purportedly under the protection of a certain business tycoon with close relationship to the fugitives' friends here. Is this true? Do we know where they are hiding or anything about foreigners protecting them? Are we still  actively looking for these fugitives ?

6. If the above 'fugitives' are no longer WANTED, why has there been no announcement or statements to that effect. Certainly Najib and the 'fugitives' family members would be elated with such an announcement. 

7. Since the MACC has made it very clear that they will be resuming their investigations into SRC International, could the Malaysian public then expect some renewed vigour in tracking down those WANTED 'fugitives'? I'm sure we could even seek the help of FBI, CIA and other powerful agencies apart from Aseanapol and Interpol if we are really serious about wanting  to nail those 'fugitives', can't we? 

8. Finally please be reminded that we, the sad, irritated, frustrated, angry, very disappointed but determined Malaysians, are following this case and other cases related to the 1MDB scandal very closely. 

To refresh, a definite statement to clarify if those Wanted are still Wanted or have they been cleared by a similar justification of just channelling 'donations to the Prime Minister of Malaysia' would be much appreciated. 

Over to you MACC, Bank Negara and the Royal Malaysian Police. 

p/s MACC could also take this opportunity to clarify who in the MACC actually issued/authorised/signed the purported statement clearing Najib Razak of any wrongdoings pertaining the approximately RM2.6 billion ringgit donation. Clearing the air would better than suffocating on somebody else' stinking waste. Thank you.

Stop reminding the public. Diversion tactics in progress.

Head in the sand Najib thought semua dah selesai .. semua dah selesai.

Where is gani, the ex AG?

Where is ex SB Director?

Which is more critical, to investigate on 1MDB caused by najib or to find the culprit who had actually leaked true criminal charge sheets draft?

Arul Kanda says needs 6 months more for 1 MDB to shine. Hence the tactics to puncture the Task Force, the PAC and trying to mess with MACC investigators.

The Rulers should direct a new taskforce under an RCI.

Otherwise, this is all going right under the carpet.

And we are the ultimate losers.

Why has nobody in umno got the b**** to speak up? One or two only. Kudos to the lady from Wanita. Two thumbs up.

But the rest?

You mean 3 million members are happy with this????

You have the Arool giving almost daily updates now on the "good and pink" health of 1MDB. Where was he when PAC was looking for him? Hmm, looks like the benefactor and advisor may be leaving town soon and is almost everyone trying to protect their positions? Time will tell.

What does Al-Quranil Karim (4:135)say?

"O ye who believe! stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest ye swerve, and if ye distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well- acquainted with all that ye do."

They can't be found?
That means they are hidden. Must be the work of Hantu Raya Bibir Merah.
