BERSIH 2.0 is totally shocked by the fifth disappearance of social activist Peter Chong. Peter has been missing for more than two days. His son has reported to the police but to date there has been no news on his whereabouts.
The police must immediately act swiftly to search and rescue Peter as well as the other four missing persons, Joshua Hilmy, Ruth, Amri Che Mat, and Raymond Koh.
Indeed this is a very sad day for all Malaysians that disappearances are happening here in our country and yet there has been little assurances or news from the police on their efforts to locate the whereabouts of these missing persons.
We fear for the safety and security of the five missing persons and demand that the police take greater efforts to be transparent and accountable by informing and updating on the progress of their search and rescue work. They must make this their priority as this helps mitigate some of the pains and anxiety suffered by the families of the disappeared.
BERSIH 2.0 request for an urgent meeting with the IGP to obtain an update on the police actions to locate these missing persons.
We must not wait but to protest.
