Press Release – February 20, 2017: Reward Offer

20th Feb 2017


20 February 2017, Petaling Jaya – The family of missing pastor Raymond Koh Keng Joo today issued a statement that the reward for his safe recovery has been increased from RM10,000 to RM100,000. “Our family is grateful and touched that concerned well-wishers have stepped up to increase the reward money offered,” said Susanna Liew, the pastor’s wife. “We hope that this will help in efforts to find my husband and restore him to us safe and sound.”

The reward of up to a maximum of RM100,000 will be awarded for information leading to the safe recovery of Raymond Koh Keng Joo. Pastor Koh was abducted on the 13th of February 2017, between 10:30 to 10:45 am, while he was driving a silver-coloured 1990 model Honda Accord (ST5515D) along Jalan SS4B/10, Petaling Jaya, about 300-400 metres after the Caltex petrol station, from the turn-off from the LDP Expressway.

There are no restrictions to the eligibility of the reward recipients. A panel will decide how the full reward will be divided according to the accuracy and usefulness of information provided. The identity of informers will be kept private, if requested.

The family has set up a dedicated number to call: 011-3973 2670 (Jon), with the hope that this will bring a much-needed breakthrough in locating and safely recovering Pastor Koh. To date, police investigations have not yielded any significant leads, whether the identity of the abductors or their criminal accomplices, the SUVs used in the abduction or the location of the missing pastor and the car he was driving.

“This phone number is to be used specifically for the purpose of receiving credible leads for the investigation,” explained Susanna Liew. “While we are gratified by the outflow of prayers and good wishes being sent to us, we hope that the public will respect the need to keep this phone number free for investigation purposes only.”
