Govt’s bid to dismiss automatic citizenship case denied

KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court has fixed June 30 to hear a lawsuit filed by an NGO and six Malaysian mothers with foreign spouses who are seeking for their children, born abroad, to be given automatic citizenship.

This follows a decision by High Court judge Justice Akhtar Tahir, who dismissed an application by the government to strike out the suit on grounds that the lawsuit was not frivolous, vexatious and an abuse of court process.
