Without Prison Reform, Malaysia's Ex-Convicts Face Bleakness

Sub-humane conditions in Malaysian jails and an apparent lack of political will for reform plague ex-prisoners, curtailing already slim chances of rehabilitation and a return to society. Jerald Joseph, former Commissioner of SUHAKAM, weighs in on the challenges of prison reform and his recommendations on what to prioritise in policy-making.
