Wife of missing Malaysian pastor awarded “Women of Courage”

The wife of missing Malaysian pastor Raymond Koh was named as one of 12 recipients of the US’ International Women of Courage (IWOC) awards.


According to a statement by the US Embassy in Malaysia published on March 4, Susanna Liew’s efforts in seeking justice for other members of religious minorities who disappeared under similar circumstances as her husband was acknowledged by the IWOC awards.

“Liew actively pursued justice for her husband and others during the Malaysian Human Rights Commission’s (Suhakam) 2018-2019 public inquiry into enforced disappearances and continues to push the government to investigate these cases and prosecute those responsible.”

The statement further applauds her that despite facing constant police harassment and death threats, she continues to advocate for her husband and others, not because of her faith or theirs, but because of their rights as Malaysians.
