Why is Jho Low Back in Town?


Can’t help but to ponder why Jho Low is back in the country ?

Hmmm.why would a billionaire take a risk with his physical presence coming back to Malaysia knowing so many are after his scalp,blaming him for his alleged role in the 42 billion 1MDB debt.

Why ?

Noticed the proximity in timing of Jho Low’s risky return to Malaysia and 2 events-

The 1B loan from the Abu Dhabi group -IPIC- being announced ?Jho ‘s turf – He seems to have a good network in that region ,its also where Petro Saudi is based-

And the 1 million bounty for info of TDM’s illicit cash hoard?

.Could be just co-incidence,nonetheless still – SO intriguing..!

Why would any sailor choose to steer and sail himself straight into a storm?

Of course in this instance ,it is the 1MDB storm that puts him at some risk merely by his physical presence in the country. .
When he is at a relatively safe and calm location in non-turbulent seas at a distance -at his super posh JynWei HQ office in Hong Kong?
Guess there has to be a crucial reason why the alleged 1MDB Money-Man needs to be in town-

maybe getting too dicey for him to do transactions /correspondence online from any international location..

Never know who may be hacking and leaking the info–

Then again ,if it is some straightforward business scheme to resolve the murky troubled 1MDB situation that is above board ,then there is nothing to worry about-

But if there were to be some diabolical scheme being hatched regarding the 1MDB fiasco-and the Funds ?
SInce Jho Low has built up a sterling repute with the 1MDB funds -as some innovative financial wiz esp in Laundering affairs.,its not inconceivable that ,all parties rather not risk any more damaging leaks.

And maybe Najib needs his input and be a proxy  or a middleman of sorts – in how to sort out the current 1MDB financial mess via their combined networks ,since Najib cannot afford to ,or risk to be seen to-

be directly involved or have anything in-appropriate or opaque financial dealings involving 1MDB that can be linked back to him.

Najib seems to be building a wall of expendable cannon fodder around him , individuals positioned to take most of the flak and even be set-up to be the fall-guy/guys.-if things get too dire to defend .

Shielding Najib from the brunt of the attacks.

And also perhaps Jho Low can be used to contribute his 2 cents worth of schemes in Najib’s war-room tactics against the weird mis-matched coalition of unified voices of the opposition – in the common siege on 1MDB – but more threatening UMNO old guards and warlords led by none other than the battle hardened giant-slaying  Generallismo TDM..

Hardly has the dust settled in Jho ‘s return to the country ,and there is a 1 million bounty on- for details of TDM’s financial mischief /misdeeds of the past..

Just mulling,whether this Jho Low may have a hand in it -or not.!

And just what is CAGM that just materialised from thin air,practically  overnight ?

And who are these CAGM members offering the 1million bounty?

Perhaps by scutinising who the members are and their financial resources and esp where the 1 million bounty will be sourced from -can reveal if they are legit ?

Then there is the proximity in timing of Jho Low’s return to the  IPIC deal being announced.

The US$1 billion that an Abu Dhabi group is to pay 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) by June 4 –

is no big deal as 1MDB is only getting back its own money.

The Edge Weekly reported in its latest issue out today that in September 2014,

1MDB had controversially paid the International Petroleum Investment Corp (IPIC)

and its subsidiary Aabar Investments US$1 billion to terminate an option granted to them to buy a 49% stake in any future listing of its power assets.

1MDB had borrowed US975 million from a consortium led by deutsche bank to pay IPIC/Aabar.

The Edge added that this latest deal is bound to come with conditions imposed on 1MDB and Putrajaya, which was not disclosed by Finance Ministry on Friday. – TMI

 ( Also the Players  seem to be also from the region where Petro Saudi is from,and where Jho Low seems to have a network / connections -or is he merely a Front for another?
Coupled with the fact that ,there is yet again , valid questionable details not fully revealed -,despite that -amidst the current  hostile environment to anything remotely to do with how 1 MDB financial affairs are handled .
Anything that has any links to 1MDB cannot afford the luxury of confidentiality,given the public’s Trust deficit in the Affairs.-Anything short of transparency in any dealings is unacceptable-)
Strangely ,this IPIC arrangement is vaguely familiar and reminiscent of the Petro-Saudi type of that it may have the fingerprints of the same main protagonist -Jho “the 1MDB money-man” Low all over it.-Where the 1MDB money was going round in circles on a round the world trip-
So ,as The Edge  reported-(1 MDB is only getting back its’ own money) after the  money goes around in circles
Did Jho Low also helped to put the deal together.?

Celaka , banyak sui, sial betul..Big deal! just words.

Celaka, Sial, or the Chinese equivalent ” ” LU banyak sui lah”…expressions so commonly used when we get annoyed. many of us just blurts it out unthinkingly and sometimes even with malay friends which i am sure, many of us do.and vice versa.

But it is used by the UMNO guys as an excuse, just sandiwara to stir up some stink , masked behind the word .if not the word celaka, it will be another word or situation.,anything to intentionally cause trouble and try to blow up another racial thingy out of proportion..

” saja mau cari pasal , kalau bukan ini, lain pula mesti ada punya, janji boleh buat kecoh perkauman , apa saja pun jadi. . inilah UMNO ! ” according to a malay close friend of mine.
I just feel ackward that these people are shaming decent Malay friends and Malay people in general by this over the top antics , just so they think they can score some points with the community.

Then i got annoyed , and muttered “LU banyak celaka lah “. then my buddy  said ” lu pun bingai la” then instead of threatening to burn my house down, he said ,after a chuckle “joom , pergi mamak kena teh tarik.”


As it is said about sticks and stones..but then although words per se cannot hurt anyone but , it can be twisted in a way to cause manipulation of emotions of shallow minds who may resort to physical reaction including violent behaviour , like puppets on strings that tugs at the blind rage of these subjects, whose common sense or sane reasoning has been evaporated by their puppet masters.


And check out what Hisham is  hinting  at: listen between the lines for inferences of any kind?  Suspicious minds may read something being suggested.?!

Ever suspicious , just not positive who he is directing the hint at/to..not sure if he is  rebuking/ condemning the UMNO youth for their outburst of lawlessness or is he suggesting something else that may be if it comes to that. and UMNO gets  desperate and pushed to a corner.?

Still  preference is  to give benefit of doubt and take his words as a caution to the perps as it is supposed to be…?




Hisham is essentially saying or hinting , whoever the message is directed at / to !

Think about it.. carefully , because if the hooligans are /were to be  allowed to lose control and go extreme in inciting and instigating , race riots may happen, targeting the nons business premises , and  arson or  looting may erupt ,  just like  what happened to the  Chinese victims in Vietnam recently , .who were intentionally targeted.

It is a very delicate dangerous game of inciting racial resentment being played.

And some nervous quarters are saying that it will be the ultimate  last card UMNO may  play,if they really get  desperate enough ,they will

by hook or crook, incite racial tension and even clashes.

Scary thought is that it could be real or staged ,   pit 2 groups together, make sure they are ethnically correct, bash each other up.If  enough blood is splattered , and it is on.!

Real incident is horrible to contemplate , yet with the right amount of provocation and prodding, and mob mentality (like Vietnam), emotions of the mob manipulated by sinister elements , it is even more dangerous. So many creative ways that can be used to spark off riots.


Really hope this  video  message is what  Hisham  wants to convey to the ones responsible for the seemingly well planned publicity seeking antics  of  the thuggish hooligan outlaws, who seem to feel they are invincible , untouchable and “protected” , hence they dare to be so bold.

As if even the PDRM need to be wary on how to handle them, because the thugs may feel they have  immunity and so can disrespect the laws of the land with impunity.

At least, Hisham’s message does carry a serious undertone to mull over , better indeed than the pandering messages from KJ (poor dude.compromising self worth and principles in order to be relevant, somehow he seems better than that but guess if ye don’t play their rules, Leave..! But he aint got no place to go!

And the  DPM , unsurprisingly , hopelessly same,  melayu 1st, malaysian 2nd  stance unwavering . Still , no point resenting an old man who can’t do any more damage to the nation’s psyche than his Boss…

Since the worst goes to the patronizing or rhetorical nonsense from the PM of  UMNO?

Like KJ and DPM , making excuses for the unacceptable thuggish behaviour ,the hooligans  acting as if they are above the laws, criminally intimidating and threatening to burn the HQ of a political party.

And he defends their honor, like saying , hypothetically ” The person called him a bastard, so he cut his throat, but it is a crime of passion, defending his honour, so the murder victim is also wrong” ??

Only in Malaysia, the UMNO organization and associates..??  at times seem to have immunity and break laws with impunity since they are “protected”.

Police can’t do much because they serve  a same boss whose is solidly on their side.. Payung Besar..!
