tunku : GOOD JOB.i can't understand why certain groups wants the government to preserve the jail and make it as national heritage.what crap,a prison which has no historical value.what good can the prison remind us off? what sort of heritage? the memoirs of the ex-prisoners? sometime we have to use our brain to oppose the government's move not talking craps just for the sake of opposing.
