Move to do away with police report requirement for lost documents hailed

KUALA LUMPUR: Several government departments have begun implementing the move to do away with the requirement to have a police report submitted in the application for the replacement of lost documents.

Kuala Lumpur Road Transport Department (JPJ) public relations officer Syed Abdul Halim Syed Abdullah said the department had started to implement the move a year ago and had no problem with it.

"We are taking into account numerous issues, for instance in crime cases such as snatch theft, where victims are required to submit police reports on the loss of documents such as their driving licence and vehicle grant documents, so that they can be exempted from paying the fines," he said Wednesday.

He said JPJ also has a comprehensive database that was being constantly monitored by its officers.

He welcomed the move, saying it would go a long way in minimising bureaucracy and costs.
On Tuesday, Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan said the move to abolish the requirement for police report was decided at the meeting of the Public Complaints Standing Committee in April, saying that such requirement had never been provided for by any law.

Following the move, members of the public no longer need to provide police reports for the replacement of lost documents such as birth certificates, passports, marriage certificates, academic certificates, vehicle registration documents, driving licences and land titles.

National Registration Department (NRD) public relations officer Janizah Mohd Noor said the department had implemented its own application, allowing it to do away with the requirement for police report to replace lost MyKad.

"We have our own database and those who have lost these documents are only required to come to the NRD office to report it and pay the fine set by the NRD," she when contacted.

National Unity and Integration Department director-general Datuk Azman Amin Hassan also hailed the decision.

The move would relieve policemen of additional duties, thus making it easy for the public to apply for new documents and speeding up the issuance of the documents, he said.

Malaysian Muslim Consumers Association advisor Tunku Azwil Tunku Abdul Razak supported the move, saying police report were only needed to prevent unauthorised use of the lost documents.

Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation vice-chairman Datuk Kamarudin Mad Ali said data centres at government departments would facilitate replacement of lost documents because of easy retrieval of records. - Bernama
