Whoops! He did it again!
Tun Daim Zainuddin revealed today that controversial millionaire, Low Taek Jho or Jho Low had attempted to contact him several times to help resolve the issues relating to the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal.
The chairman of the Council of Eminent Persons (CEP) said Jho Low had telephoned him even before he went to China in July 2018.
He said in an exclusive interview on Soal Rakyat aired over TV3 last night,
“When Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad wanted to send me to China, Jho Low contacted him, he wanted to talk to me but I turned him down, he called but I told him to speak to my representative.
“He (Jho Low) said he could assist (on matters relating to 1MDB) (but) before this I have said in the first media conference with the CEP, that if he is not guilty, he should return, that night he called me.”

According to The Star, the one-hour programme was conducted by Tan Sri Johan Jaafar with Mustapha Kamil Mohd Janor as the moderator.
Daim added that since the Pakatan Harapan government took over the administration of the country, those involved in the 1MDB scandal were willing to become witnesses to explain what actually transpired.
“Jho Low is certainly the mastermind, we have yet to complete the investigation but we receive new evidence every day which is shocking. Jho Low is involved for the link with Abu Dhabi, like with (Saudi) Arabia, America, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Switzerland.
“The whole world knows, CNN, BBC, Chinese news (media) know, even Africa knows. But here, even in Parliament one cannot speak, no transparency, what is the point of bluffing because the truth will emerge later, want to cover up with the hope that if they (Barisan Nasional) win (in the 14th General Election), it can be covered up.”
