Law Of The Jungle

Fugitive alleged master thief Jho Low, speaking presumably from the safety of the the country which is protecting him from Malaysian justice, has attacked the seizure by the Malaysian government of large sums of money from his father, describing the action as “illegal”

It is clear, from his past conduct, and present evasion of justice, that this criminal financier is well versed in all the meanings of “illegal”.  However the actions of the Malaysian Government are entirely legal. If Jho disagrees he has only to return to Malaysia to contest the matter in the Courts. No one should hold their breath waiting for him to do that.

He will be back, sooner or later when he no longer has any value as a bargaining counter and is still young enough to serve a whole slew of life sentences for his crimes.
