Children’s citizenship needs serious attention

Date:

KUCHING: Children’s citizenship should be prioritised, said state Welfare, Community Wellbeing, Women, Family, and Child Development Minister Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah.

At the same time, she acknowledges that the issue has a wide range of context and affecting circumstances and that there are always two sides to every coin.

“The best interest of the child should be used as the yardstick and this very often depends on the contexts and circumstances,” she said.

She said these recently when asked for comments on former law minister and Pengerang MP Datuk Seri Azlina Osman Said’s stance on Malaysian citizenship for foreign-born Malaysian children.

She argued that any law must allow for some flexibility due to disparities in situations and circumstances.
