Tun Dr. , the Prime Minister of Malaysia, has said that fugitive businessman Low Taek Jho, popularly known as , has nothing to be afraid of should he return to Malaysia to stand trial, if indeed he is guiltless, which Low and his legal team insist he is.

Dr. Mahathir said that the government does not step in with judicial matters, according to the Star, and that judges in Malaysia are “fair,” in a press conference on Saturday, December 8.

Low’s legal team issued a statement published on Low’s website on December 4, a part of which read, “Mr. Low will not submit to any jurisdiction where guilt has been predetermined by politics and there is no independent legal process. It is clear that Mr. Low cannot get a fair trial in Malaysia, where the regime has proven numerous times that they have no interest in the rule of law.”

The Malaysian government has already issued a warrant for Low’s arrest in connection to the 1MDB scandal.

A spokesman for Low has said, “The regime has proven numerous times that they have no interest in the rule of law.”

However, the Malaysian Prime Minister made it clear that he believes otherwise. According to the Malay Mail, Dr. Mahathir said “Malaysian judges are quite fair… I think that we all have appeared in courts, and we (know that we) can’t keep on dismissing the judges, or getting another judge for ourselves. We have to accept that the institution of the judiciary is not being interfered with by this government.”

Dr. Mahathir also said, “He must know he is guilty, so when he is guilty, he will feel that the judgment is not fair.”
