Ex-IGP: Pastor Koh’s abductors could have learnt moves from the movies

30th Oct 2017

The former Inspector of General of Police was asked at an inquiry on Monday if he thought the abduction was professionally done.

“Can see in the movies everyday. Can learn from the movies,” he told a public inquiry by Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam) into the disappearance of Pastor Koh and three others.

However, he agreed with a lawyer from Pastor Koh’s family that to a layperson, it could appear to be a highly- organised operation.

“Maybe. It is possible,” he said.

He added that there was a previous case where a gang leader was killed on a busy street in Setapak in an even more “efficient” operation.

The inquiry is being held under Section 12(1) of the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia Act in connection with the disappearance of Koh, social activist Amri Che Mat, Pastor Joshua Hilmi and his wife, Ruth Sitepu.

The panel of inquiry consists of commissioners Datuk Mah Weng Kwai as chairman, Prof Datuk Dr Aishah Bidin and Dr Nik Salida Suhaila Nik Saleh.

Koh, 62, was abducted from his car by a group of men along Jalan SS4B/10 in Petaling Jaya on Feb 13 at about 11am while he was on his way to a friend’s house.

His silver-coloured car bearing the number plate ST5515D has not been found.
