‘Make report on Pastor Koh and Amri public’

KUALA LUMPUR: The Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam) urged the government to make public the report from the task force set up by the government on the disappearances of Pastor Raymond Koh and Amri Che Mat.

Suhakam said in a statement yesterday that the government had set up the task force in 2019 to look into its findings from the public inquiry regarding the matter, where the commission held that kidnappings had taken place.

“Based on Suhakam’s 2019 report on its public inquiry into the disappearances of Pastor Raymond Koh and Amri Che Mat, it was concluded that enforced disappearance had taken place. In this regard, Suhakam calls for the report of the task force to be made public,” it said.

Suhakam is also continuing its public inquiry into the disappearance of Joshua Hilmy and his wife Ruth Sitepu, and this is expected to be concluded by end of this year, the statement added.

Meanwhile, in conjunction with the International Day of the Victim of Enforced Disappearances yesterday, Suhakam also called on the government to ratify the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance and to put in place legal remedies in addressing enforced disappearance in the country. — Bernama
