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.
