(2) A requirement to appear is--
(a) if bail is granted--a requirement to appear in accordance with the accused person's bail acknowledgment, or
(b) if bail is dispensed with--a requirement to appear as and when required by the court or by any notice or other process by which a person can be required to appear before a court.
