Also in attendance was the Attorney General, Datin Seri Paduka Hjh Hayati binti POKSDSP Hj Mohd Salleh; YAM Pengiran Anak Haji Mohammed Al-Mokhtar; and officers and staff of the AGC.

In her speech, the Attorney General conveyed her appreciation to the personnel for their commitment and dedication in providing registry services to the public.

She also acknowledged and highlighted the many achievements by the Registry, which include the silver category achievement for their participation in the Kumpulan Kerja Cemerlang (Quality Control Circle) in 2002.

Later, Mohaimin bin Mohamed, who had served at the Registry for 30 years, delivered a speech on behalf of the Registry personnel.

A doa selamat was later read by Counsel Muhd Adi Faisal bin Hj Omar.
