PENGERANG: Social media users have been urged to stop circulating a video claiming that the Social Welfare Department (JKM) mistreated a man as the clip was recorded in 2012.

Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Rohani Abdul Karim (pic) said that JKM reached out to the man years ago and got to the bottom of his problems.

"Please stop circulating the video, you are only victimising him, as the man in the video has begun a new life and is now a family man with kids. He is doing well and holds a job now," she said.

The clip claims that the man was mistreated by JKM after he was found abandoned in 1987.

In the clip, the man questioned what happens to children living under JKM's roof after they turn 18 and questioned why he was given for adoption to a Chinese family despite his Malay features.

" We urged the public to refrain for spreading the video further," she told reporters after launching the national-level Community Service Order Integrated Camp and Sports Arena here on Sunday.

She stressed that the issues highlighted by the man has been addressed and some of the information provided by him in the 14-minute long video were untrue.
