Official warned missing Malaysian pastor

In the latest hearing held by The Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam) for missing Malaysian pastor Joshua Hilmy and his wife Ruth Hilmy (née Sitepu), the landlord of the missing couple testified that a former official had reached out to Joshua advising him to flee the country.


ICC reports that the fifth witness, Selvakumar Peace John Harris, who was the owner of the couple’s residence, recounted that then youth and sports minister Khairy Jamaluddin had emailed the pastor, with his urging believed to be related to Joshua’s baptizing a Malay couple in January 2015.

The couple that he  had baptized might have been victims of enforced disappearance and announced on January 26 that a public inquiry into the disappearance of the couple would begin on Feb 18 in Kuala Lumpur.
