Moral Support from Community

In regards to the issue of assistance given to former inmates raised by Yang Berhormat Awang Haji Ramli bin Haji Lahit, the Minister of Home Affairs explained moral support is needed especially cooperation from companies to train the former inmates with specific skills and at the same time give them the opportunity to integrate back into society.

Last year, the After-Care Association which was established in August 2020 has assisted 24 former inmates and 6 of them are self-employed while the rest are working with specific companies. The Minister hoped that they can continue such efforts and highlighted the importance for the society to give support to these former inmates.
