Suriana Welfare Society executive director Scott Wong said that children may be subjected to trauma if they are placed in prison with other convicts.

“We had ratified the United Nation’s Convention on the Rights of the Child over 20 years ago, which state that children’s welfare should be given the best consideration.

“Now we are putting them in jail. So this is not taking the best consideration of the child at heart,” he said, adding children must not be in prison.
