Well done, Citizens! A technical committee has been set up to push the proposed Nurin Alert to the next level. Reps of a group called Citizens of Nurin Alert met up with top officials from the Social Welfare Department on Friday to discuss, among other things, a draft on the proposed Nurin Alert. The "Citizens" comprise several prominent bloggers, crime analyst Kamal Affendi Hashim, Nurin's blogging uncle Jasni Jalil, and officials representing prominent corporations.
Nurin Alert may form part of Shahrizat Jalil's Child Protection Policy that is to be tabled at the Cabinet soon. The setting up of the technical committee coincided with 100 days of 8-year old Nurin's murder, a crime that shook the nation.
