DIFFERENT FORMS OF BAIL

1) Police Bail

When an accused is arrested for a minor offense Bail may be granted by a police official before the accused's first appearance in court. It is therefore important to establish the nature of the offence allegedly committed by the accused.

2) Prosecutor Bail

Before the first appearance of an accused prosecutor on standby may grant the accused bail when the offence he is charged for falls within Schedule 7. The prosecutor may grant bail after consultation with the police investigating officer and after he is satisfied that the accused has no previous convictions or pending cases and that the accused has a fixed address may impose reasonable conditions upon such bail.

3) Bail Applications in Court

Should the offence the accused is charged with dictate that Police Bail or Prosecutorial Bail may not be applied with for or if such applications were unsuccessful, the accused may apply for his release on Bail in Court upon his first appearance or at any stage before his conviction.
