KUCHING: Sarawak National Party (SNAP) is “alive” again following the Court of Appeal’s ruling to stay the Registrar of Societies (ROS) decision to deregister the party, said its president Datuk Amar James Wong Kim Min. 

“SNAP headquarters here will be open again tomorrow (yesterday), and we will do business as usual,” he said at Kuching Airport on his return from Kuala Lumpur late Tuesday night. 

Wong, who has led the 42-year-old rural-based party for 20 years, said that party members were happy to get their “house” back. 

On Tuesday, the Court of Appeal also granted permission to Wong and party secretary-general Datuk Justine Jinggut to apply for a certiorari order to quash the ROS decision made on Nov 5 last year. 

ROS chief Datuk Ismail Dollah Harun had revoked SNAP’s registration on the grounds that it had failed to resolve a leadership crisis triggered by the sacking of Bintulu MP Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing about a year ago.
