Prison inmates generate handicraft sales of RM 6 mn

The prison inmates produced handicrafts worth RM 6 million this year, between January and September, compared to RM 5.5 million, in the corresponding period last year, said Mr. Datuk Wira Abu Seman Yusop, Deputy Home Minister.

This practice proves advantageous for these inmates in respect of their rehabilitation as well, as they would be able to hold the positions of dealers or instructors in the crafts industry after their release from the prison.

The Ministry intends to take steps for the promotion of goods manufactured by the prison inmates, by setting up more galleries in nearly each zone including the East Coast, Sabah and Sarawak, he informed reporters in the sidelines of Prison's Day Celebration at Prisoner's College in Kajang.

The items produced by the prison inmates comprise batik, weaved songket, handicraft decorations and souvenirs. All these produces are kept at a gallery, for sale, in the Home Ministry Complex in Dusun Datuk Murad in Malacca and are being sold at reasonable prices to the consumers.
