Blanket ban is outrageous. If there was meant to be punishment about going abroad then the ocurt should ban from travel, like directorships etc.
Of course I would never go without telling probation at the risk of recall. I was asking out of curiosity as I do not know why they have given me my passport.
I find it implausible that they have safeguarding measures. Probation has difficulty sending faxes from one organisation to another how are they going to know if someone has gone abroad for business or pleasure.
