Deputy Home Minister Nur Jazlan Mohamed has defended Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak for using a government jet for his family's year-end vacation to several destinations across Australia.

He said many were unaware that Najib, in his capacity as prime minister, is entitled to use the Malaysian government's Airbus Corporate Jet A319.
