Pastor Koh’s family urges PM to start new investigation


PUTRAJAYA: The family of missing Pastor Raymond Koh has submitted a memorandum to the Prime Minister’s Office urging Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to order a new investigation into the disappearance of Koh and three other persons with similar socio-religious profiles.

Citizen Action Group On Enforced Disappearance (Caged) spokesperson Rama Ramanathan said on behalf of the family that this is a matter of life and death – as well as a matter of national carelessness about kidnappings.

Koh’s wife, Susanna Liew, their son Jonathan Koh, Rama, Council of Churches of Malaysia (CCM) secretary-general Rev Dr Herman Shastri, and Suara Rakyat Malaysia (Suaram) executive director Sevan Doraisamy submitted the memorandum to an officer who accepted it on behalf of the Prime Minister’s Office.

Koh was abducted by a group of men along Jalan SS4B/10 in Petaling Jaya on Feb 13, 2017 while on his way to a friend’s house. His silver-coloured car bearing the number plate ST 5515D has still not been found.

Amri, the co-founder of non-governmental organisation Perlis Hope, had gone out in his SUV from his home in Kangar at about 11.30pm on Nov 24, 2016, when he went missing.

His car was later found at the construction site of the Bukit Cabang Sports School in the wee hours of the following day.

Meanwhile, Hilmi and his wife, Sitepu, vanished sometime in November 2016.
