The Court’s aforesaid concerns the intended replacement of “Sijil Pengesahan Dokumen” (“SPD”), with that of “Afidavit Pengesahan Dokumen” (“APD”), as a means to verify the authenticity of documents exhibited in Form 6 (Petitioner’s Affidavit for Admission to the Bar purposes).
Through follow-ups with the Court’s concerning the implementation of the APD, the Court’s have confirmed and informed us on 24 February 2023, that the implementation of the APD is postponed until further notice.
As such, Petitioners are to continue:
i) using SPD for the purposes of verification of the relevant documents; and
