Pastor's family hopes arrest won't distract focus from 'real' abductors

Published:  |  Modified:

Pastor Raymond Koh's family has expressed hope that last week’s arrest of an individual in connection with the Koh's abduction will not distract efforts to find his “real abductors” or discourage others from sharing information.

In a statement marking one month of Koh's disappearance, his wife Susanna Liew said the family remains in the dark over his whereabouts.

“I refer to the arrest of a suspect by police in the early hours of Thursday, March 9. As the police have referenced us, the family, in their public statements about this, I would like to clarify the facts from our side.

“A number of text messages were sent to my son Jonathan’s mobile number that seemed suspicious and extortionate. On Wednesday, March 8, Jonathan alerted the police to these messages, whose quick work on this led to the arrest.

“While I am happy that the police acted swiftly on this matter, I hope the arrest does not distract attention away from the real abductors and their accomplices or discourage genuine informers to reach out to us,” Liew added.
