Should Criminal Defendants Get Passport Privileges?

The courts have given permission to several high profile figures undergoing trials for the temporary return of their passports for travel abroad, including former Prime Minister Datuk Sri Najib Razak and his spouse, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor as well as Umno President Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi.

These decisions are raising eyebrows, given that all three are facing corruption charges - does this set an unwanted precedent? We discuss how the law operates in these scenarios with criminal lawyer Goh Cia Yee.
