Without prison reform, Malaysia’s ex-convicts face bleakness


Join us on Telegram and Instagram for the latest.

Subhuman conditions in Malaysian jails and an apparent lack of political will for reform plague ex-prisoners, curtailing their already slim chances of rehabilitation and return to society.

BFM talks to Jerald Joseph, a former national human rights commissioner with Suhakam, about the challenges of prison reform and his recommendations on what to prioritise in policymaking.
