Raja Muda: Don’t shun offenders, give them a second chance

SEPANG, JAN 23: His Royal Highness the Raja Muda of Selangor, Tengku Amir Shah ibni Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah in his decree said that anyone who has made mistakes should be given the opportunity to repent, and not continue to be shunned by society.
The Selangor Youth Community (SAY) Royal Patron and Executive President also said he believes these people can be a valuable asset if given enough opportunity.
“All successful people in the world often admit to making many mistakes, but the key to success is to pick yourself up after a fall.
“We also must support each other as a community.
“Today, we celebrate students who have completed rehabilitation training to begin a normal life, and we are also prepared to accept them back into the community,” he said.
He was speaking at the ‘Hope and Prosperity’ – Chinese New Year Celebration, at Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) on January 23.
There were 40 trainees from Victory Drug Rehabilitation Centre and One Way Home, who were entertained in the special programme with Raja Muda of Selangor.
There was also a signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Segi Value Holdings Sdn Bhd and Biforst Group with the Malaysian Substance Abuse Council (MASAC).
MASAC is a coalition of non-governmental organisations (NGO) and drug rehabilitation centres.
“I thank all parties involved, including teachers and assistants of these centres who have played critical roles in guiding these students.
“Indeed, I am always here to support you towards a better life journey,” he said.
