Enforced disappearances: Why does the case of Joshua and Ruth matter?

In Malaysia in 2016, Christian pastors Joshua Hilmy and Ruth Sitepu disappeared.

Joshua was an “apostate Muslim.” Ruth was an Indonesian Christian who had received training in Christian ministry in a seminary in Indonesia.

Based on evidence presented to the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam) during a public inquiry into their case, Caged Malaysia introduces these two pastors and the response of the police to their disappearance. It explains why this case should matter to everyone, everywhere.
