PUTRAJAYA: Many of the cases alleging delays in the application for citizenship, MyKad or passports are actually fraudulent.
Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar said in these cases, the applicants were foreign nationals who had sneaked into the country illegally and threw away their documents.
“They then claimed to be Malaysians. The National Registration and Immigration Departments have to be careful when processing their applications.
Let's just ask the Home Minister whether he knew there were hundreds of thousands who got MyKad in Sabah through illegal means! And what is he going to do about these???
