Committee of Supply 2021 debate, Day 2: Nadia Ahmad Samdin on targeted support for families of offenders
01 Mar 2021 05:20pm
Train staff and volunteers so that they know how to better handle different demographics of offenders. Monitor and break inter-generational offenders with targeted support for their families. MP Nadia Ahmad Samdin asked the Government if it could consider such measures. Speaking in Parliament on Monday (Mar 1), she said adult male offenders make up the majority of inmates and many have spouses and children. Having an accused incarcerated can be very destabilising for families, she said.
