Dead Malaysian man fights to get his life back

Poor Mr Minggu. He has been fighting with the government for nearly three years to convince them that he is not dead. His problem is that being dead makes it impossible for him to apply for work. From Bernama:
"Please help me to convince the relevent authorities that I am not dead. I am very much alive. The going has been very tough, very stressful since I was officially certified dead by Nyalau Hospital in Bintulu four years ago," he appealed to reporters at a news conference he called to publicise his case.

Minggu Mang, now 40 and a former contractor, said he learnt that he had been certified dead when he went to the Road Transport Department here to renew his two-year duration driving licence on Dec 19, 2003.

That was when he discovered he had "died" in 2002.

The Road Transport Department officer told him that all his records with the department had been erased and he was advised to clarify his status with the National Registration Department.

As he no longer "existed" officially, he could not work and has been depending on the generosity and understanding of his in-laws, relatives and friends.
Remember people. You can't get a job when you're dead.

Someone must have faked his death and reported it to the authorities.
