Cabinet agrees to proceed with appeal over citizenship ruling

PUTRAJAYA: The Cabinet has agreed to continue with the appeal and stay of execution application on the Kuala Lumpur High Court’s decision on the granting of automatic citizenship to children born abroad to Malaysian women married to foreign spouses.

Home minister Hamzah Zainudin said this was to enable the government not to be subject to contempt of court, and at the same time, comply with the provisions of the Federal Constitution.

He said there were two different Kuala Lumpur High Court decisions, namely the case of Suriani Kempe and six others against the Malaysian government and the case of Mahisha Sulaiha Abdul Majeed against the national registration department (JPN) director-general along with two others over the interpretation of the term “father” in the Second Schedule Part II Section 1 (b) and 1 © of the Federal Constitution.
