YOURSAY | Should a convicted man be allowed to travel overseas?
[Image: 7d5ea9b3e1d99fbcbbd3e77d131b4c45.jpg=s800]

Dr Raman Letchumanan: Even rich and powerful accused/criminals seem to have the special privilege of being able to attend to their children admitted overseas for normal hospitalisation.

Just like hiding their stash in off-shore tax havens, the government says this is normal, nothing illegal.

At home, many died from Covid-19 without their loved ones present because of travel restrictions and lockdowns.

Are the courts going to set new precedents for the accused to freely travel overseas for spurious reasons? Would the courts inquire why such normal childbirth cannot be availed locally? Are our medical facilities so bad?

OrangeKancil6903: How come they get such privileges? If a person is charged in court, he or she shouldn’t be enjoying such benefits until he has been successfully cleared of wrongdoings.

What is this telling would-be offenders? No politician would fear the consequences of corruption.

Cyclonus: Yes, please allow. In fact, please ensure both former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak and his wife, Rosmah Mansor, are on the same flight.

Heck, make it a family affair - the son who was also charged with tax evasion should also be there to rejoice the birth of another family member. And please don’t forget the family lawyer (who is facing money-laundering charges).

I can’t wait to read what foreign journalists are going to write about this.

Steven Ong: Can a convicted criminal (pending appeal) even leave the country?

The opposition should get Singapore’s Home Ministry to ban him from entering the country, as they had banned controversial Muslim preacher Zakir Naik.

Banning extreme preachers and convicted criminals is for the safety and peace of a country. Both could be a bad influence on one’s citizens.
