Koh was said to have been abducted by five masked men in three SUVs. — File picA candlelight vigil for missing pastor Raymond Koh is scheduled to be held tonight outside the Selangor police headquarters in Shah Alam.

Fellow pastor SM Yee who had sent out a message about the gathering said he and several Malaysians will be there to show support for the Kohs and the police who have been working to return the 62-year-old since his abduction three weeks ago.

“Let us come together in solidarity with Pastor Raymond, his family and the PDRM in the desire for his safe return soon.

“All peace-loving Malaysians, please come to show support to the family. We long to see justice carried out, for a family to be reunited and for Malaysians to live in peace and harmony,” Yee said in a statement yesterday.

He added that the vigil will start from 8.30pm to 10.30pm and that it would be a civil affair without any speeches or banners.

“No banners; no public speeches; no loud hailers; and no political flags or clothing please, he said.

Koh was reported to have been taken forcibly from his car on February 13 by a group of masked men while he was driving alone on Jalan Bahagia in Petaling Jaya.

No ransom demand has been made to date.

Koh is known as the founder of a social group called Harapan Komuniti that sought to help single mothers, drug addicts and those with HIV/AIDS.

His wife, Susanna Liew, 61 has said her husband had no known enemies.

The missing pastor’s family is offering a reward of RM100,000 for information on his whereabouts.
