(July 19): Has Low Taek Jho, the alleged mastermind of the misappropriation of up to US$4.5 billion ($6.2 billion) from 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) sovereign fund, been detained by the Chinese authorities?

According to Sarawak Report, the socio-political blogsite founded by investigative journalist Clare Rewcastle-Brown, which quoted a Hong Kong radio station, the Penang-born businessman who is better known as Jho Low was detained pending Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s visit to China.

When asked about this by reporters at the Parliament lobby this morning however, Dr Mahathir said he is unaware of Low’s reported arrest in China, but hoped it is true and that he is brought back to Malaysia.
