Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar will be meeting Thai authorities in Kuala Lumpur next week to discuss the possibilities of interrogating former PetroSaudi International employee Xavier Andre Justo, says Deputy Home Minister Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar.

"I was informed by Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar that Thailand's deputy inspector-general of police will come to Malaysia to meet him to discuss permission to interrogate Gusto, who is being held in that country," said Wan Junaidi.
He told reporters this after delivering donations to the Darul Taqwa Mosque in Lundu, Sarawak.

According to Wan Junaidi, Malaysian authorities could not get involved in Gusto's case until they got permission from the Thai authorities to do so.

"We must look this case in terms of jurisdiction, as even though this case involves a company in Malaysia, Justo was arrested and alleged to have committed crimes in Thailand," he said, referring to Malaysian state investment vehicle 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
He said if Thailand needed any kind of help from Malaysia, the police and the ministry were ready to cooperate at any time.
Junaidi added that he believed Thailand would not allow Justo to be brought to Malaysia to face the law in this country until his case was finished in Thailand.
On June 24, Thai police arrested the Swiss national for attempting to blackmail PetroSaudi, an international company based in Saudi Arabia which had drawn attention in Malaysia as it had established ties with 1MDB.
Following the attempted blackmail, several emails and documents were published by whistleblower site Sarawak Report. – Bernama, July 4, 2015.
IGP spending much tine on insignificant case! What a waste of time. Does Malaysia do not have much serious criminal cases for the IGP to attend to? Or is he doing someone's bidding?
