POLICE were spotted today at the apartment block of former Petaling Jaya councillor Peter Chong Fook Meng, who had disappeared, where they interviewed residents and checked closed-circuit television footage from the guardhouse.

Chong, 54, went missing after he went out to meet a friend for a drink on Wednesday. He was last seen leaving his apartment in Persiaran Raja Chulan, Kuala Lumpur, about 7pm on April 5.

Chong’s son, Darryl, lodged a police report on his disappearance on April 8 after all attempts to contact him failed.

It is understood that the police team arrived at the apartment about 1.30pm where they proceeded to question the guards and residents.

While a group conducted the interviews, two others went to the control centre where they viewed the CCTV footage.

The plainclothes detectives spent some two hours there before leaving.

They are part of the special task force announced earlier today by Kuala Lumpur police chief Amar Singh.

The task force, he said, was to investigate the disappearance of Chong and also to establish if the case was linked to the abduction of Pastor Raymond Koh on February 13. Koh was abducted along Jalan SS4B/10 in Petaling Jaya by about 15 men who came in three SUVs.

Dang Wangi police chief Mohd Sukri Kaman confirmed that his team was at Chong’s apartment block to view CCTV images and interview residents.

He said the team also met Darryl yesterday but he was apprehensive during the interview.

The Malaysian Insight also tried to contact Darryl but the calls were unanswered. He, however, sent a text message urging that the family be accorded some privacy.

“Kindly understand that it is a very tough time for us and we would appreciate some privacy,” the text message read.

Sukri said police were keen to interview the son further as he lodged the police report, adding that Chong’s case is still classified as a missing person’s report. – April 10, 2017.
