Do you know someone who has been remanded? Does someone you know got a bail application coming up. Once a bail application is listed the procedure followed depends on the Court that is handling the case.
The Courts where you can make a bail application are:
- Children’s Court
- Magistrates’ Court
- County Court
- Supreme Court
If you have been refused bail in the Magistrates’ Court there are two ways of approaching that problem.
- You establish “new facts and circumstances” case (such as residential rehabilitation which had not been available at the time of your last bail application, or delay etc.) and re-apply in the Magistrates’ Court.
- You appeal the Magistrates’ decision to the Supreme Court.
