PUTRAJAYA: Umno Youth and legal volunteer group Sukaguam are planning to go to Sweden to assist the family of the Malaysian couple detained there for allegedly smacking their son’s hand to discipline the child.
The wing would also work with the Malaysian embassy and local authorities in Sweden to help find a suitable foster home for the couple’s four children, said Umno Youth executive secretary Ibdililah Ishak.
He said several Muslim families residing in Sweden had volunteered to look after the children.
“We are very concerned about the custody and the welfare of the children.
“As Muslims, we feel it is important that they be provided with an environment sensitive to their needs, such as issues with prayers and their food intake,” Ibdililah said after a meeting with Wisma Putra undersecretary (consular) Ambassador Mat Dris Yaacob.
Sukaguam president Datuk Khairul Anwar Rahmat said they would examine the legal aspects of the incident to see if there were undue delay in the detention of the Malaysian couple.
