Looks like fugitive businessman, Low Taek Jho is still living it up and still has loads of cash to burn.

According to reports in the Chinese press, the alleged mastermind of the 1MDB fiasco is residing in China and had recently traveled to Hainan, Hong Kong and Beijing.

Apparently, local police were working closely with China's Public Security Bureau to locate Jho Low, but have yet to nab him.

As the high-profile trial of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak in SRC International begins, reports said Malaysian police would like to arrest him as soon as possible.

Besides Malaysia, Low is said to be wanted by Singapore and the US Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Low is believed to possess a resident card in Hong Kong and owns a luxury residence there. His company in Central, Hong Kong is operating as usual.

According to the daily, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s visit to China could help to locate Low.

It is believed that Dr Mahathir will ask for China's assistance in locating Low when he attends the Belt and Road Summit in Beijing, which will be held on April 26 and April 27.
