“For those who have offended, and have already served their time and completed their legal responsibility, [we] should absolutely give them the opportunity to re-enter society and contribute to society,” Lee told reporters on Wednesday evening.

He was addressing the media after a meeting with around 80 youth representatives, which included students, athletes, and members of the All-China Youth Federation. Lee said he shared with them his aspirations and experiences while growing up, adding that they touched on topics including sports, culture and career development.
