Speaking to the media shortly after Haziq was released from custody at Dang Wangi police station at 5.45pm Saturday (June 15), Ramesh said his client has no travel restrictions.

"The investigating officer informed me that Haziq will not be remanded as we had feared but is being released on police bail instead.

Ramesh added that his client was cheerful and in good spirits and had cooperated fully with the police.

On Friday (June 14), Bukit Aman CID director Comm Datuk Huzir Mohamed confirmed that Haziq was arrested at the international departure hall of KL International Airport (KLIA).
