KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has directed the Home Ministry to expedite the process of repairing the Sungai Buloh Prison quarters to ensure it is completed by year-end.

The Prime Minister urged the Home Ministry’s chief secretary to ensure the repair works are carried out as soon as possible.

"God willing, I have asked the Chief Secretary to move the process into the ‘fast track initiative’,” he said in his speech at the Prisons Department’s Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations at the Sungai Buloh Prison here today (May 5).

Also present were Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani and Prisons Department director-general Datuk Nordin Muhamad.

The Prime Minister also announced the approval of an allocation for the installation of the air conditioning system for Dewan Tan Sri Murad Ahmad, which is situated within the Sungai Buloh Prison compound.

Anwar, who is also the Finance Minister, thanked all the staff and management of the Sungai Buloh Prison for serving him well during his detention there a few years ago.

Reflecting on his memories while serving a nine-year prison term, the Prime Minister said it taught him the meaning of good deeds, tolerance and the true values of trust.

The Prime Minister also spent time visiting the health clinic at the Sungai Buloh Prison. - Bernama
