Malaysia's Bank Negara seeks Jho Low's associates

PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) is looking for two individuals to assist them in investigations.

BNM uploaded a poster of the duo, Casey Tang Keng Chee, 50 and Jasmine Loo Ai Swan, 42, on its Facebook page seeking information on their whereabouts and they were being investigated under the Exchange Control Act 1953.

Tang was one of the pioneers of the Terengganu Investment Authority (TIA), which later became 1Malaysia Development Board (1MDB).

He was one of the few who were in the early TIA team together with 1MDB's former managing director Datuk Shahrol Azral Halmi.

Loo is reported to have joined 1MDB in 2011 to replace Tang. Prior to that she was the executive director of the Utama Banking Group Bhd's compliance and legal department, a company that businessman Low Taek Jho and his associates used to own.

She was also a director in Putrajaya Perdana Berhad, a company that UBG took over in 2008.

BNM requested members of the public with information on the two to contact them or to lodge a report with the police.

BNM also stated it was not offering a reward for any information provided on the duo.
