Attorney-General Tan Sri Idrus Harun has confirmed fugitive businessman Low Taek Jho or Jho Low who had made attempts to engage with the government to settle the charges against him.

However, he said all offers were rejected by the Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC).

Idrus, in a statement, said the attempts were made through Jho Low’s representatives this year. In these attempts, Jho Low’s representatives met with agencies of the Government of Malaysia including the AGC.

“All offers for a settlement from Jho Low’s representatives were rejected by the AGC,” he said referring to news reports on the issue. A business weekly citing a source, reported that Jho Low has offered RM1.5 billion to the Malaysian government to settle the charges against him.

He has been reported to have swindled more than RM40 billion from the Malaysian people through the 1MDB scandal.
