I am not well-versed with Intellectual Property Act and still confused after reading it upteeth time.  Just need advice from ppl out there...

Well, I am working with a government department.  Few years back I developed a material in the form of CD for our KIK (Kumpulan Inovasi dan Kreatif) - Innovation and Creative Group.  I am the main developer with some helps (like cover desifn)from two other colleagues.  The task was not in my job descriptions however it is a directive from my boss during that time.

Now, I am not longer with that department. The thing is some new guys hijacked my works (whole thing without changed)and entered it for competition at national level. They didnt include my name as one of the commitee nor they recognised me as the developer/author. I am the only personnel who know how to do it.  For worst, this is approved by present head of department.

What is my right in this matter? Can't I even claim my ownership?
