Apart from registries, other services that will resume on May 4 include counters for commissioners for oaths, letters of attorney and e-filing.

The chief registrar said Chief Justice Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat has ordered the resumption of these services following Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin’s announcement on May 1 that almost all businesses can resume operations under the conditional MCO that starts on May 4.
