Malaysian Pastor Raymond Koh still missing four years after abduction
An international group serving persecuted Christians has drawn attention to the unsolved case of Malaysian Pastor Raymond Koh, who has been missing since he was abducted in a military-style operation four years ago after being accused of preaching to Muslims.
“For four years, he’s been neither seen nor heard from. For four years, his family has suffered, worried and fought for answers,” says The Voice of the Martyrs in a statement sent to The Christian Post, recalling Koh’s abduction on the 13th of February 2017, while he was driving near Kuala Lumpur.
Koh, who is ethnically Chinese, founded Hope Community, a nonprofit to serve the poor and underprivileged along with his wife. In 2011, authorities accused Koh of seeking to convert Muslims — an act forbidden by law in Malaysia. Though the allegations against Koh were dropped, bullets were later sent to his home as a warning.
Koh’s abduction was captured on surveillance camera, but neither Koh nor his car has ever been found. Koh was driving in the Petaling Jaya area when his car was surrounded by three black SUVs, forced to a sudden stop and he was abducted.
