14-year-old Gan Chun Kai was in high spirits as he dressed up for a special function at the Home Ministry’s headquarters in Putrajaya.

Since 2013, his adoptive parents Gan Soon Lee and Looi Mei Fong have been embroiled in a wrangle with the National Registration Department because their son is not a Malaysian citizen.

Chun Kai was one of the 34 individuals under 21 years of age who were finally awarded their citizenship at the event in Putrajaya on Friday.

The event was officiated by Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin.
