In a recent interview with LexisNexis Malaysia, our Managing Partner, Raymond Mah, shared his experience in handling citizenship and statelessness litigation since 2009. He explained the legislation gaps, procedure for pursuing citizenship in the courts and the issues arising from his recent Federal Court matters. The Federal Court appeals were settled amicably in February 2019 with the result that there remain no guidance from the Federal Court on many issues affecting stateless children. Raymond Mah is quoted saying that MWKA’s “objective is to continue to fight for the rights of these children through the court process. We are prepared to see such matters being settled along the way. As far as the development of the law is concerned, we will persevere and keep going until such matter is heard and resolved by the Federal Court”.
