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.
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.
