A BBC Show has come across a passport dating back to 1641 in Sunderland, UK, which was signed by Charles I.

According to a report by BBC News, the program, known as ‘Flog It’, has put a price of up to 20,000 pounds on a passport which is almost 400 years old.

Rita was married to former Sabah Director of Civil Aviation, Thomas Humphrey Paglar Rita was later issued with a My Kad (Permanent Resident status), instead of a My Kad (Citizen status).

Following her complaint to the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Sabah Branch) in June 2012 and its ensuing correspondence with the State National Registration Department (NRD), Rita was advised by the NRD to apply for citizenship status under Section 15(1) or 19(1).

Rita however admitted that she doesn’t possess a birth certificate because that was before World War Two.

But many of her contemporaries can vouch for the fact that North Borneo (now Sabah) is her birthplace.

“It would be nice if it went to a museum or the Passport Office if they have collections.

But for the moment it is with the BBC for safe-keeping,” he added.

Terminally ill Rita Joan Thomson (pic), 80, who is of mixed Bajau native from Bongawan Papar,had no less than two Deputy Chief Ministers that supported her application for a Malaysian My Kad – Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan and Datuk Ariah Tengku Ahmad.

Their signatures apparently did not carry sufficient weight at all.

Ariah, 78, and Thomson, 79, were schoolmates at St Francis Convent Secondary School after the Second World War.
