Jho Low prevailed over 1MDB directors in Brazen Sky matters, court hears

A FORMER Singaporean banker told the Kuala Lumpur High Court today that based on his observation, fugitive businessman Low Taek Jho, popularly known as Jho Low, was the higher authority who green-lighted financial decisions involving 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) offshore investment in Brazen Sky Ltd.

Former head of Wealth Management Services of BSI Bank Kevin Michael Swampillai, 59, agreed to a suggestion by Najib Razak’s counsel, Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, that that situation made Low seem more powerful, prevailing over 1MDB two directors, Terence Geh and Azmi Tahir.
