What is an Appeal for Bail?

- Featured article by LAWYERS-ONLINE.CO.ZA - March 2019

In cases where bail has been denied by a lower court, the legal representation of an accused is afforded the opportunity to appeal the verdict in the High Court. These appeals may also pertain to the conditions of the bail or the amount. For example, if an accused was granted bail with heavy restrictions on their movement and at a really high cost, this may be appealed.

Conversely, a decision to grant bail may also be appealed in the High Court by the prosecution. Therefore if the DPP truly feels that the accused is a danger to the public and should be in custody for the duration of their trial, they may appeal the bail and its conditions. In these cases, a compromise may be reached where the accused is granted bail but with very strict conditions attached.

This should not be confused with the fact that once an accused has been found guilty of a crime they may appeal against the verdict of the court. However, during these appeals processes, the bail conditions of the accused may be reviewed and they may be granted bail during the appeal process.

The appeals process is fascinating and fraught with complicated legalities, but it ultimately aims to serve the best interest of justice.
