PETER CHONG’S RETURN FROM THAILAND NO EXCUSE FOR IGP TO DRAG ON KIDNAP PROBE OF RAYMOND KOH, OTHER ACTIVISTS

KUALA LUMPUR — Peter Chong has returned from Thailand, police said today after the activist disappeared 11 days ago.

“Syabas @PDRMsia Kuala Lumpur. ‘Missing’ Peter Chong is back from Pattaya, this afternoon,” Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar tweeted.

Syabas @PDRMsia Kuala Lumpur. ‘Missing’ Peter Chong is back from Pattaya, this afternoon.

Khalid said last Wednesday that Chong, a former Petaling Jaya city councillor, had left for Thailand and was not abducted, theorising that Chong may have run away because of debt.

Chong’s family said they last saw him on April 5 at home, after he posted an ominous message on Facebook about being warned by a stra

nger to be careful as people were increasingly disappearing.

Chong disappeared after a Christian pastor, Raymond Koh, was abducted last February, sparking concern among the public as three other activists had gone missing since last November.
