What a farce, says civil society group


Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin (left) faces a barrage of criticism from activists after announcing the team that would investigate the forced disappearances of Raymond Koh and Amri Che Mat. – The Malaysian Insight pic by Kamal Ariffin, June 26, 2019.

THE composition of the task force to investigate the disappearance of two missing activists is a blatant attempt to undermine and subvert the findings of the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam), a civil society group has said today.

Citizens Against Enforced Disappearances (Caged) said the results of the initial public inquiry were the findings of three “distinguished, legally-trained, Agong-appointed Human Rights commissioners, and the home minister claims the Cabinet is behind this”.

  • Looks like this task force is set up to counter all the earlier findings from Suhakam. A task force to look into the earlier findings is just redundant and no conviction at all to right the wrongs by the Home Minister Muhyiddin . He should resign and disappear from the politics. Right now there should have been an investigation into the PDRM Special Branch involvement in this enforced kidnaping disappearence and not white washing the conclusions. It has been more than two years after their abductions and charging a driver on kidnapping of Koh and the court case still pending just shows it is only a wayang and dlily dallying to pursue any further. It is a wonder if the abductees are still alive and if their bodies are found after severe decomposition even a good forensic experts will not dare to make a decision which will resulted in case closed

  • This is a shameless and I'll conceived plan to cover up the sins of the PDRM perpetrated during the BN era and should be rejected by the public and revisited by the PH government which has been disappointing in righting the wrongs of the past. If PH can't do better than this, be prepared for a punishing pushback at the next GE.
