"This latest move will certainly help the police to track down both men.

"Our priority has always been to detain them as soon as possible," he told The Star.

The fresh charges were brought by the Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) and the Attorney General's Chambers on Friday.

The papers were registered with the Sessions Court in Putrajaya in the morning, and warrants of arrest for both men were also sought.

Jho Low remains defiant despite criminal charges filed against him by the police for money laundering, saying he would not submit to any jurisdiction where guilt had been predetermined.
