Malaysian IGP, Khalid Abu Bakar released a statement stating that the ‘disappearance’ of Peter Chong wasted a lot of the police’s time and energy.

In a press confrence at Bukit Aman earlier today, he said that Chong had put the public in a state of fear, and had wasted the police’s time.

KUALA LUMPUR: Activist Peter Chong, who was thought to have been abducted, wasted the police’s time and energy, said Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar.

He said Chong’s two-week disappearance had put the public in a state of fear, as they believed that abduction cases were on the rise.

“He (Chong) got the public shocked. So we want to find out why he did that.

“Of course he has wasted our men’s time,” he told a press conference at Bukit Aman here today.

Chong was reported missing on April 5, but police later discovered that he had gone to Thailand.

The activist later told police that he went to Hatyai on April 7 to meet a source who claimed to have information on the whereabouts of Pastor Raymond Koh, who was abducted on Feb 13.

Chong alleged that he was then abducted and taken to Pattaya before being released.

Hatyai police however said they had not received any report regarding the abduction, and that they would take action against Chong if he was found to have fabricated the incident.

Pattaya police echoed the warning, adding that they too had no knowledge of the alleged abduction as no report had been lodged.

Khalid had said Malaysian police were working with their Thai counterparts to investigate Chong’s abduction claim.

“We are checking with Pattaya police. We will wait for their response before taking further action.

“We can’t make any assumptions. Whether there was a police report or not, we will wait for feedback from there (Thailand),” he said.

‘Missing’ Peter Chong is Back From Pattaya

Breaking news!

One out of the five ‘missing’ people, Peter Chong has been ‘found’!

Well, the police found out that he is not even lost after all, but went on a trip to Thailand without telling anyone.

That made some people went hysterical about his ‘disappearance’ and made all kinds of theories including conspiracy theories.

Some accused that he was abducted and openly blamed the Malaysian Police and the government for his disappearance, only to find out that he was on a trip.

So, they all went crazy over nothing, putting the blame on the innocents, pointing fingers to who ever they wish and condemning the authorities; and did all that for nothing!

That is the mentality of some people from the opposition parties, who are fast to blame others especially the government and the authority for everything without investigations.

So, since it is proven that they had wrongly accused others and the authorities, are they going to issue an apology?

PETALING JAYA: The former aide to a PKR MP, who was said to have gone missing since April 5, has been found and has returned to Kuala Lumpur, Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar announced today.

“Missing Peter Chong is back from Pattaya this afternoon,” Khalid said on his Twitter account, while congratulating the police force.

Police took a statement from Chong at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport before he joined his family members about 2pm.

When contacted, Kuala Lumpur police chief Amar Singh Ishar Singh, said Chong told police he had gone to Hatyai with the intention of meeting his source who was to reveal more information on the disappearance of Pastor Koh Keng Joo.

Upon reaching Hatyai, he claims he was abducted and brought to Pattaya.

Upon release, he said he contacted his son who bought his return ticket home.

On Wednesday, Khalid had said police had information that Chong had crossed the border into Thailand at the Bukit Kayu Hitam checkpoint.

Chong, a former aide to PKR MP Sivarasa Rasiah, was said to have disappeared days after he related on Facebook about his conversation with a stranger, who warned him to be more careful in the wake of several cases of missing activists.

Chong’s son, Darryl, had lodged a police report on April 8 after attempts to contact his father failed. A task force was subsequently formed to look into Chong’s disappearance.

Chong’s disappearance came after the widely reported abduction of Pastor Raymond Koh, as well as the cases of Pastor Joshua Hilmy, his wife Ruth Hilmy and Perlis-based social acitivist Amri Che Mat.
