Is England also guilty for harbouring RPK?

From one Richard Loh :

According to Bernama, inspector-general of police Musa Hassan has said that individuals in collusion with fugitive Raja Petra Kamarudin could be hauled up under the law.

"We can propose to charge them for harbouring criminals but it is up to the court to decide," he said when asked what the police were doing to bring Raja Petra home.

I looked up the definition of the two words, 'fugitive' and 'harbouring' – as uttered by the IGP – in the dictionary:

Fugitive - fleeing or running from danger or pursuit, duty or service; one who flee; a deserter; one who flees from danger or duty, one who flee for refuge.

According to the IGP, Raja Petra Kamarudin, or RPK, is a fugitive and that to the IGP means he is a criminal but he did not specify the crime that RPK has allegedly committed. So by the dictionary's definition of the word fugitive, RPK is not a criminal "as yet".

- A place of shelter, protection or refuge, to shelter or take under protection' to protect; to entertain or cherish in the mind.

Does the IGP understand the difference between 'harbour' and to meet with a friend deemed by the IGP as a fugitive? From the dictionary explanation, I suppose the IGP should take England to court for actually harbouring RPK by allowing RPK to remain in England.

This country is plagued with all kinds of criminal activities and the IGP finds it so important to go after a "yet-to-be criminal".
