Wives of missing Koh and Masri apeal to PM for help

12th Jun 2018

PETALING JAYA: The wives of missing Pastor Raymond Koh and Amri Che Mat have appealed to Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to step in and help them find their spouses.

Amri has been missing for 565 days after he was taken away by persons unknown in Kangar while Koh couldn’t be contacted for 484 days after he was snatched off the street in Petaling Jaya.

“Any delay in this matter could be seen by those inside and outside Malaysia as a breach in the rule of law and the denial of our husbands’ right to be protected under that same law,” Norhayati Mohd Ariffin and Susanna Liew said in a joint statement issued today.

“Since our husbands were taken from us on Nov 24, 2016 and Feb 13, 2017, we have waited anxiously, yet hopefully, for a breakthrough to pierce the wall of silence that has surrounded the investigations into our husbands’ disappearances.

“Please help us find out what happened to our husbands, who took them and where they are now. We want them back with us. We beg for justice. We plead for the truth.”

The women said they didn’t get the necessary help from the authorities under previous government.

They also pleaded to the Attorney-General’s Chambers to provide a safe space for whistleblowers to come forward with knowledge about their husbands’ abductions.
