It’s all due to ignorance

THE letter “Poser on validity of legal documents at JPJ” (The Star, Feb 2; online at is referred. The crux of the matter is the Road Transport Department’s demand for the writer to produce the original death certificate to effect the transfer of ownership of a vehicle despite the issuance of the Grant of Probate (GP).

I would kindly request the Bar Council to do the necessary to inform all government departments, statutory bodies, financial institutions and similar organisations and educate them of the following – that if anyone produces a GP or Letters of Administration (LA), it is a clear indication that the original death certificate is lodged with the Courts and cannot be retrieved. But it is all right to request for certified true copies of the death certificate or the will.
