Malaysia (Mission Network News) – Mystery and frustration surround the abduction of a Malaysian pastor.
His disappearance reads like the script of an action movie. On February 13th, a group of masked men surrounded 62-year-old Raymond Koh and whisked him off the streets, all while another person stood recording the incident. It took 40 seconds to make him vanish. A video of Koh’s alleged abduction surfaced soon after and went viral on social media. His family has heard nothing from the kidnappers and now fears the worst.
Meanwhile, a 31-year-old Uber driver tried to take advantage of the situation and, although he was not connected to the abduction, tried to extort money from the family in exchange for Koh’s release. He’ll stand trial for that charge on April 26th.
