The news that the Indonesian authorities have seized mega crook Jho Low’s mega yacht at the request of the US authorities, as evidence of Jho’s criminal behaviour, is welcome.

So is the parallel news that the US authorities have moved from civil proceedings in the 1MDB scandal to preparing criminal prosecutions.

If Jho, upset by the confiscation of part of his criminal gains, needs consolation, he might reflect on this.

US supermax jails are not nice places to be; especially for life sentenced prisoners, but they beat the conditions at Sg. Buloh where he would otherwise spend his remaining days.
