(2)  The Minister may, in his discretion and subject to such conditions as he may impose, accept a notice of appeal or petition of appeal lodged by the appellant after the expiration of the period specified in paragraph (1)(a) or (b), if the Minister is satisfied that the appellant was unable to lodge the notice of appeal or petition of appeal, as the case may be, within that specified period due to the appellant’s absence from Singapore, illness or any other reason where the Minister is satisfied that there has not been any unreasonable delay on the part of the appellant.
