SOCIAL activist Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye has been appointed the first honorary life member of the Malaysia Crime Prevention Foundation (MCPF) since the inception in 1993.

The MCPF senior vice-chairman received the appointment certificate from Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, who is also foundation chairman.

The brief ceremony was held at the Deputy Prime Minister’s office in Putrajaya after an MCPF council meeting chaired by Dr Wan Azizah.

The honorary life membership was awarded to Lee for his outstanding contribution in helping to promote MCPF activities over the past 26 years.

“I am proud to be associated with MCPF and have served the organisation thus far on a voluntary basis.

“I shall continue to do more and encourage others to contribute to the enhancement of MCPF’s objectives in the interest of public safety, ” he said.

MCPF, established on Jan 11,1993, is a chapter of the Asia Crime Prevention Foundation based in Tokyo, Japan. It is also the first chapter to be established outside Japan.
