The Sultan of Sulu — whoever he may be — has been issuing birth certificates purportedly to his subjects or “tarraayat” or rakyat in Sabah, the Malaysian state on Borneo island.

He didn’t call it “katarangan kalahiran” — those are my words — but rather “katarrangan sin kapag-anak” or birth information.

Those who know Malay will be able to guess the meaning of katarrangan sin kapag-anak.

Below is the low quality birth certificate supposedly issued to a person born in 1994.

The below than sub-standard birth certificate look as though it was issued in the 1940’s.

But I bet no machine in the current world will be able to read those code. Someone from the outer space may be able to decode it.

Lim said his blog:

“In Parliament yesterday, I gave the Deputy Home Minister, Datuk Chor Chee Heung a copy of a birth certificate issued by the Sultanate of Sulu & North Borneo/Sabah for children born in Sabah, challenging Malaysian sovereignty in Sabah, as he said he was unaware of the existence of such birth certificates.

DAP MP for Kota Kinabalu Hiew King Cheu had earlier given me a copy of the birth certificate issued by the Sultan of Sulu & North Borneo/Sabah for his “subjects” in Sabah, raising disturbing questions about the future of Sabah – especially with the unchecked influx of illegal immigrants in the past four decades with many native Sabahans feeling that they have become foreigners in their own homeland!”
