Earlier, deputy public prosecutor Yong Ching Hong applied for an RM10,000 bail with two local sureties because the accused is a foreigner.
“Please impose additional conditions on the accused, namely to surrender his passport to the court and report himself to the nearest police station,” he said.
Defense counsel M. Tharuma Ratnam said: “My client is married to a Malaysian and has two children. He also cooperated with the police throughout the probe.”
The court allowed bail at RM72,000 with two sureties for all charges and ordered the accused to surrender his passport to the court until the disposal of the case.
The court set June 4 for mention.
