This happened after he was charged in court with drug and traffic offences.

Singaporean appeared in court on 30 Oct

29-year-old Singaporean Pan Xuanyao (name transliterated from Mandarin) appeared in a Malaysian court on Monday (30 Oct) morning, reported Shin Min Daily News.

On 27 Oct, he allegedly drove under the influence of drugs at 5.28am along Jalan Tanjong Puteri.

He eventually lost control of the Singapore-registered Audi he was driving and crashed into the gates of a royal palace.

Singaporean released on bail of S$3,440

Pan was eventually handed two charges — the first was for violating a law on controlled drugs and the other for a road traffic offence.

Further to that, the judge set a bail of RM7,000 (S$2,006) on the former charge and RM5,000 (S$1,433) on the latter.

That means he was released on a total bail of RM12,000 (S$3,440).
