ICC Note: The Malaysian police continues its search for Pastor Raymond Koh who has been abducted in February of 2017. In June of this year, four people have been arrested due to suspicion that they were involved with kidnapping pastor Koh. However, they were released due to lack of evidence. Pastor Koh’s family remains devastated but they continue to hope and pray that Pastor Koh will return to them in good health.

11/03/2017 Malaysia (Strait Times) – The four people who were arrested in June in relation to the abduction of Malaysian pastor Raymond Koh have been released, a public inquiry was told.

Investigating officer Asst Supt Supari Muhammad said they were remanded for 13 days.

“There was no proof to charge them with the abduction. There was no further action against them,” he told a Suhakam inquiry on Thursday (Nov 2) looking into the disappearances of Pastor Koh, social activist Amri Che Mat, Pastor Joshua Hilmi and his wife Ruth Sitepu.

The inquiry is being held under Section 12(1) of the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia Act.

In June, then Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said police found compelling evidence that pointed to Pastor Koh’s kidnapping following a shootout with a drug and arms smuggler in Kedah.

Four people were arrested following the shootout and they were brought to Kuala Lumpur where they were remanded.

ASP Supari said the suspects were put in an identity parade, but it turned out negative.
