Bail and Bond
- You have a right to be released on reasonable bond or bail conditions before pending a charge or trial, unless there are compelling reasons established to the court by the prosecution. The court should automatically grant you reasonable bail/bond terms. If it fails, you have a right to request for the same.
- If the prosecution presents evidence in favour of your continued detention (denial of bail) you have a right to be present and to rebut that evidence
- If the court finds in favour of your continued detention, that is, that there exist compelling reasons for your freedom of movement to be limited, then the court shall inform you of those reasons.
- If you are charged with an offence that is punishable by a fine only or by imprisonment for not more than six months, you shall not be remanded in custody
