by Ganesh Sahathevan

DFAT's got to lawyer in Malaysia, Shafee Abdullah, has been granted access to his seized passport so that he can visit Sydney and continue representing his client in Australia (see story below).

As reported previously by this writer, the client is at Sydney's Long Bay Prison:
DFAT's Malaysian lawyer Shafee who has been charged with money laundering, given access to NSW's Long Bay Prison

The above adds to the suspicion that NSW's most senior law officer, the minister in charge of keeoing us safe, the Attorney General Mark Speakman SC, is of the opinion that this 1MDB scandal is all a conspiracy concocted by Mahathir and the ABC (and this writer) concocted to "defame" Najib Razak.

Court returns Shafee's passport temporarily for Aussie trip

Senior lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah today succeeded in getting his international passport returned temporarily by the Kuala Lumpur High Court to represent a client in Australia.
This came as High Court judge Collin Lawrence Sequerah allowed Shafee's oral application during case management before the judge this morning.
For the record, Shafee's passport was kept by the court as one of the bail conditions when he was charged with three criminal offences, including two charges of money laundering involving RM9.5 million that he allegedly received from former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak.
Shafee told the court that he only needed for the passport to be released for his travel there between this Thursday and next Monday.

He also assured the judge that his trip to Australia would not affect the ongoing 1MDB trial against Najib, as he is only scheduled to leave at 9pm this Thursday and would be back in Malaysia by Monday, which is a public holiday.
Shafee said he had to make the oral application for his passport release first, citing that he had just received a compact disc from Australia containing 1,000 pages of notes of evidence for his client's case yesterday evening.
His application was however objected by DPP Ahmad Akram Gharib.
"My lord, I have strict instruction to object to this application, on reasons that he might be a flight risk," he said.
After hearing submissions by both parties, the judge then allowed Shafee's application. - Mkini
