ICC Note:

Christian persecution in Malaysia is on the rise. There have been several accounts of pastors being abducted by the police and then wrongfully accused or sentenced simply by association. Unfortunately, the government continues to abuse its power by threatening and punishing Christians for their faith.

10/31/2017 Malaysia (Benar News) –Malaysia’s former police chief dismissed accusations that officers were involved in the abduction of a Christian pastor eight months ago, telling a human rights commission fact-finding panel Monday that his men were doing their best to solve the case.

Pastor Raymond Koh Keng Joo, 62, was snatched by a group of men in broad daylight on Feb. 13, when they forced his car to a stop as it exited a highway in Petaling Jaya, near Kuala Lumpur. The kidnapping was captured on surveillance cameras. Koh, a member of Malaysia’s Christian minority, has been missing ever since.

“There must be some form of police insignia. If there is none, that is not a police operation,” Khalid Abu Bakar, the recently retired inspector general of police, testified when asked whether the abductors who were wearing balaclavas could have been policemen.
