KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob has given his commitment to assist Rohana Abdullah, who was abandoned as a two-month-old baby at a kindergarten 22 years ago after her Indonesian mother returned to her country.
The matter was stated by Ismail Sabri through a video shared on the social media.
The Prime Minister is seen in a vehicle, speaking to Rohana to get a true picture of he difficulties faced by the young woman.
Ismail Sabri says he found out about the difficulties she experienced by reading about it in the newspaper.
The Prime Minister then says that his officer will contact the National Registration Department to assist with Rohana’s documentation.
“If there is any (development) later, my officer will contact you,” he says in the one-minute, five-second video.
Rohana is heard thanking him and saying that she hopes he can help her.
Rohana, 22, was abandoned by her Indonesian mother and was raised by Chee Hoi Lan, 83, a kindergarten teacher where Rohana’s mother worked as a cleaner.
Rohana was reportedly forced to drop out of school because she did not have identification documents and had experienced anxiety due to the problems. – Bernama
