His other associates Terence Geh Choh Heng and Casey Tang Keng Chee left on May 8, 2018, one day before the 14th General Elections, while Jasmine Loo Ai Swan fled on April 28, 2018, based on information received from the Immigration Department, said Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) investigating officer Rosli Hussain in his testimony today.

Rosli, the 57th prosecution witness, told the court today that the commission attempted to track down Geh and Tang, along with Low's two other associates, namely Tan and Loo in May 2018, only to find that all of them had already fled the country.
