Home minister: Early stage of Pakatan’s promise to solve stateless Indians’ problem met

The Malay Mail May 06, 2019

PUTRAJAYA, May 6 — The Pakatan Harapan (PH) administration pledged in its manifesto to resolve statelessness among the ethnic Indian community within 100 days of forming the government and delivered on this, said Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin. Expressing pride that the early parts of the pledge have been achieved, the Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) president also announced during a special interview ahead of PH’s first anniversary that his ministry has approved 1,641 citizenship to Indians above the age of 60. “Among the things that were in the PH manifesto was also the promise to solve the problem of stateless Indians or Malaysian born Indians without citizenship within 100 days. “This responsibility came under the Home Ministry and I’m happy to say that the early stages of this promise have been fulfilled. “1,641 Indians above the age of 60 was given citizenship status after they met all criteria as stated in the Federal Constitution,” he said. Muhyiddin said to that fulfil the promise, a committee was set up to examine the issue of long-standing applications for citizenship. The committee involved officers from the Home Ministry and the Human Resources Ministry. He said the committee had looked into issues related to citizenship, restricted identity cards and several pending cases that have yet to be resolved. The committee was tasked not only with resolving cases that involved the Indian community but others including the Malays who have yet to get their citizenship despite being born in Malaysia or having stayed for a long time in the country. In March, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department P. Waytha Moorthy, who is in charge of national unity and social wellbeing, said there are 10 categories of statelessness identified as causing citizenship issues to more than 300,000 individuals involving various races. Among these are a lack of documents, poverty, birth at home, unregistered marriages, and abandoned children. Others are the adoption of Malaysia-born orphans, ignorance, apathy, and fear of authorities. He said the PH government is in the final stages of consultation with various stakeholders and will be submitting papers to the Cabinet for its final approval to solve the issue of stateless children and undocumented Malaysians. He added that related government agencies are working to outline a comprehensive solution to the stateless issue, in line with the PH government’s manifesto promise. Waytha said that the government was aware of people’s anxiety especially when the PH government promised to solve the issue of stateless people, which was why they were working to find a comprehensive solution to this issue. He said these stateless individuals are in a vulnerable position and at serious risk of abuse, neglect and violence perpetuated by limited access to education and healthcare, increased social and financial marginalisation, exploitation and vagrancy.

Rundingan isu rakyat tanpa kewarganegaraan di peringkat akhir

MalaysiaKini March 28, 2019

Kerajaan sedang dalam peringkat akhir rundingan dengan pelbagai pihak berkepentingan sebelum mendapatkan kelulusan Kabinet bagi menyelesaikan isu kanak-kanak tanpa kewarganegaraan dan rakyat Malaysia yang tidak didokumenkan. Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Senator P Waytha Moorthy berkata kerajaan sedar kebimbangan orang ramai dan sedang berusaha mencari penyelesaian menyeluruh terhadap isu tersebut. “Kerajaan juga menyedari individu tidak berstatus ini mempunyai akses terhad kepada kemudahan pendidikan dan penjagaan kesihatan serta terdedah kepada risiko berdepan dengan penderitaan, pengabaian, penderaan dan bergelandangan,” katanya dalam satu kenyataan. Beliau berkata ia adalah antara pelbagai sebab kenapa sejumlah besar individu berketurunan India menjadi rakyat tanpa kewarganegaraan dan tidak didokumenkan. Ini termasuk status kewarganegaraan ibu bapa, tiada dokumen sokongan sebelum negara mencapai kemerdekaan, kemiskinan, kanak-kanak ditinggalkan, perkahwinan yang tidak didaftar kerana salah seorang pasangan tiada berstatus kewarganegaraan. Justeru, beliau berkata, Unit Transformasi Masyarakat India Malaysia (MITRA di bawah Jabatan Perdana Menteri, sedang bekerjasama dengan agensi kerajaan berkaitan bagi menggariskan penyelesaian berhubung isu rakyat tanpa kewarganegaraan. -Bernama

Berita Harian August 14, 2018

“Saya mahu umumkan keputusan yang dibuat semalam selepas perjumpaan dengan rombongan wakil masyarakat India. “Kami berbincang manifesto janji Pakatan Harapan (PH) untuk menyelesaikan masalah kewarganegaraan kaum India yang memegang kad pengenalan merah iaitu seramai 3,407 orang, mereka ini semua berusia 60 tahun ke atas.

Mana-mana dalam kalangan 60 tahun ke atas kita terus bagi kad biru,” katanya. Dr Mahathir berkata, bagi mereka yang berusia bawah 60 tahun, taraf warganegara akan diberi tertakluk pada syarat-syarat yang ditetapkan termasuk lahir di Malaysia dan seorang daripada ibu bapa adalah warganegara Malaysia. Beliau berkata demikian kepada pemberita selepas mempengerusikan Mesyuarat Jawatankuasa Khas mengenai Senario dan Pengurusan Pekerja Asing di Malaysia di Bangunan Parlimen hari ini, yang turut dihadiri timbalannya Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail dan Menteri Sumber Manusia M Kulasegaran. Dr Mahathir berkata terdapat beberapa lagi syarat yang perlu dipatuhi untuk memohon taraf kewarganegaraan iaitu mereka perlu berada di Malaysia dalam tempoh 10 tahun terakhir dari 12 tahun mereka berada di negara ini dan boleh berbahasa Melayu. “Untuk kelulusan dalam Bahasa Melayu, itu mudah saja kita buat. Jadi, kalau mereka lulus kita boleh berikan kewarganegaraan,” katanya sambil menyatakan proses untuk mengeluarkan kad pengenalan biru itu mungkin mengambil sedikit masa. Menyelesaikan isu kaum India yang tidak mendapat taraf kewarganegaraan dalam masa 100 hari terkandung dalam manifesto PH jika berjaya mengambil alih Putrajaya dalam Pilihan Raya Umum ke-14 (PRU-14), Mei lalu. – BERNAMA
