Malaysia: Mydin Owner Forgives Looters

Mydin Mohamed Holdings Bhd's Managing Director, Datuk Wira (Dr.) Haji Ameer Ali Mydin said all is forgiven for those who had stolen from the Mydin Mart in Sri Muda.

"I do not support the act of stealing. However, in times of emergency, perhaps they had no other choice and were forced to do so to survive," said Ameer in his statement. 

"I sincerely menghalalkan (allow) them to do so (because their intentions) is to survive as supplies were slow to reach them and had no (bad) intentions," Ameer said in a statement today.
