MCPF: Go all out to solve pastor’s abduction

An all-out effort should be made to solve the kidnapping case of pastor Raymond Koh, says Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation senior vice-chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye.

Voicing the foundation’s concern over the abduction, he also welcomed the Inspector-General of Police’s assurance that Koh’s family would be informed about the progress of the investigation.

“Such a move is a step in the right direction and it showed the police are concerned about Koh’s family and are doing their best to solve the case as soon as possible,” Lee said in a statement.

The family had previously claimed they were left in the dark.

Lee said apart from attracting global attention from international religious and human rights organisations, Koh’s unresolved abduction also drew attention to security and safety in the country.

Lee called on Malaysians to play their part by coming forward to help authorities if they see any crime occurring, including abductions.

“It was rather unfortunate that speculation is being made about Koh’s fate,” he said.

Lee said the public should instead allow the police to investigate the case thoroughly as he was convinced that they would “leave no stone unturned to locate Koh and catch the captors”.

“We should heed the Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism’s call on Malaysians of all faiths to come together and pray for Koh’s safe and swift return, and for police’s success in arresting the criminals,” he said.

A candlelight vigil for Koh will be held tomorrow night in front of the Selangor police headquarters. - the Star
