Bail and travel

Stuff reports:

Police are hunting a Wellington man facing drugs charges who skipped and fled the country ahead of trial. …

Morahan would not have been stopped at the border as travel alerts and passport confiscation orders were not automatically placed on bail applicants.

Such restrictions were considered on a case-by-case basis, taking the seriousness of their alleged crimes into account, Arnerich said.

Maybe it should be automatic?
