BANGKOK: The police have not received any report on activist Peter Chong''s claims that he was kidnapped in Haadyai town and taken to Pattaya recently, says Haadyai police chief Col Kittichai Sankatavorn.

Haadyai police would lodge a report against Chong for making false allegations if it was proven there was no police report on the so-called abduction, he told Bernama when contacted on Monday.

Nevertheless, he said the police would continue to investigate the claim by Chong, who is also a former assistant to Subang MP R. Sivarasa by proceeding to check with all nearby police stations as well as the tourist police in Haadyai.

Kittichai said he would also contact the Malaysian police to obtain further information on the activist''s claims that he was abducted in Haadyai, a popular destination with Malaysian tourists.

"We want to know from him where he made his police report (if he had lodged a report)," he added.

On Sunday, Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Amar Singh Ishar Singh was reported as saying that Chong had informed the police he was abducted while in Haadyai and was taken to Pattaya before being released to return home.

According to Amar Singh, the activist said he was in Hatyai to meet his source on the case of missing pastor Raymond Koh before he (Chong) was abducted.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar via his Twitter site disclosed that Chong who was reported missing since April 6 had returned from Pattaya.

Chong was reported missing after he was last seen at his residence in Bukit Ceylon here before police found he had entered Thailand via the Bukit Kayu Hitam checkpoint in Kedah, the following day. - Bernama
