When UMNO goons appreciated our national heritage, they are more concerned on making money from the development of Pudu Jail site.

The wall is the longest mural in the world painted by drug ex-convicts. The wall should be preserved for our future generations.

Parliament: Pudu Prison Won’t Be Turned Into Heritage Site

KUALA LUMPUR, June 21 (Bernama) — Although the Pudu Prison is more than 100 years old, it would not be turned into a heritage site, said Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Dr Awang Adek Hussin.

“Firstly, it’s because the government’s view is that the Pudu Prison is not something to be proud of and secondly, it is not suitable to be turned into a heritage site despite its age,” he said when replying to a supplementary question from Fong Kui Lun (DAP-Bukit Bintang), who wanted to know whether the ministry planned to build a museum at the Pudu Prison site, at the Dewan Rakyat sitting on Monday.
