BAIL ACT 2013 - SECT 14

Limitation on entitlement to be at liberty

14 Limitation on entitlement to be at liberty

(1) Bail does not entitle a person to be at liberty until:
(a) the person signs, and gives to the bail authority, a copy of the bail acknowledgment for the decision to grant bail, and
(b) all pre-release requirements of bail conditions have been complied with.
Note : Pre-release requirements are dealt with in Part 3. For example, a bail condition may require an accused person, before being released on bail, to surrender his or her passport. Bail acknowledgments are dealt with in Part 4.
(2) Bail does not entitle a person to be at liberty on those occasions on which the person is required to appear before a court under his or her bail acknowledgment.
(3) Bail does not entitle a person to be at liberty while the person is in custody for some other offence, or reason, because of which the person is not entitled to be at liberty.
Note : For example, a person may be in custody for 2 offences. If bail is granted for one offence only, the person is not entitled to be released.
