Malaysia cancels illegally-issued MyKad

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) – Malaysia’s Home Affairs Ministry has cancelled all MyKad that were sold to Chinese nationals in Penang recently, the Dewan Rakyat was told yesterday.

Malaysia’s Deputy Home Minister Datuk Mohd Azis Jamman said similar action will be taken against any illegal MyKad sale cases detected by the authorities.

“If the National Registration Department finds any MyKad was issued in a wrong way, it will be cancelled without compromise. Anyone found to be involved in this activity should be subjected to severe acts of impunity.

“The ministry has given full authority to the police to conduct a thorough investigation so that those who are found guilty can be prosecuted.”
