When her wife said, ‘Am I that kind of woman? Do you think I’ll leave your daddy?’, she said. My son came running from America to show me his love. I don’t know what’s in my heart, but there was no resentment,” he said, conveying the strength of his family.
He also emphasized drug treatment. “(Addicts) have to be treated from the beginning. In my case, I received treatment from the beginning, so I was able to overcome it.” He said that treatment is as important as punishment.
