on late birth certs
KOTA KINABALU, July 20 (Daily Express)
-- Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) wants the National Registration
Department (NRD) mobile service to go along with the mobile
court service to ensure the legitimacy of late birth certificate
member, Dr Chong Eng Leong said according to the Sabah Registration
of Births and Deaths Ordinance, late registration of birth
certificates (which is registration after 40 days after
birth) must be verified by the Magistrate's Court.
The present practice
of issuing late birth certificates to the people in the
interior might pose a legal problem for them in the future,
the birth certificate of late registration without the Magistrate's
Court verification is wrong," said Dr Chong.
