Bill Doogue represented the client at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court to get back the passport seized by Police.
The Police had not charged our client at the stage when we made an application for him to be given back his passport.
The Police obviously had concerns that he would not return once he was given back his passport. We provided a lot of material to show that his father-in-law was actually in a hospital and that our client had tickets each way, and that he had considerable assets still in Australia.
