On 1 February, Sarawak Reports carried an article saying that it and OCCRP have examined how, at the height of the 1MDB scandal, the Malaysian fraudster Jho Low utilised a network of services accessed through a company which describes itself as the “The Global Leader in Residence and Citizenship Planning” to continue to move himself and his money around the world. Henley & Partners Holdings Limited is based in the Channel Islands and operates a web of mainly offshore companies.
