Myanmar creates employment program for former prisoners

Myanmar has just created a new employment program for those just released from prison, officials said.

The program is in cooperation with private companies that promised to provide the former prisoners job opportunities, according to Maung Maung Aye, director of the Correctional Department.

"Most of them are thieves and pickpockets. If they change for the good, it will be better for the country,” he said.
