KUALA LUMPUR: A 70-year-old plumber has filed an application for a judicial review in the High Court over his failure to obtain a MyKad.
R. Kolandavaloo filed the application through his lawyers M. Manoharan & Co Thursday.
In the application, he named the Home Minister, the National Registration Department (NRD) director-general and the Government as respondents.
He is seeking a certiorari order to quash the NRD director-general's decision dated Sept 9, 2011 which did not grant him citizenship.
Additionally, he is seeking a mandamus order directing the respondents to issue a citizenship certificate and a MyKad to him.
Kolandavalan is also seeking a declaration that the director-general's decision was ultra-vires and not valid under the law.
In a letter he received dated Sept 9, 2011, the NRD stated that his application for citizenship under article 16 of the Federal Constitution had been rejected on grounds that the applicant was not well-behaved.
He is also seeking for a declaration that he had been registered as a Malaysian citizen under the law.
Kolandavalan has a birth certificate stating that he was born in Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital in Klang on July 29, 1943.
He was married to a Malaysian citizen and his four siblings are Malaysian citizens.
