Malaysian citizenship of two Indian brothers restoredMay 4th, 2008 - 3:41 pm ICT by admin
Kuala Lumpur, May 4 (IANS) Two Tamil brothers have had their citizenship “restored” after the Malaysian government corrected what turned out to be “a technical error” in their birth certificates. Because of the mistake, the brothers were shown having been born to the same parents just one month apart, causing suspicion among the national registration department officials.
Both were denied MyKads, the citizenship certificate in 1999
