    get passed

    Dear experts,

    What does 'get passed' mean in the following sentence?

    'A respectable pub where messages get passed'

    Thank you in advance,

    Olga

    Re: get passed

    Messages are passed from one person to another.

    It reads as though the pub appears respectable, but that in fact the criminal underworld uses it as somewhere to organise its activities.

    What is a grammar structure 'get passed'?
