An accused person can be denied bail if the Court reasonably feels that he or she will not show up for trial, commit a further offence which would endanger the safety of the public or if releasing the accused from custody would undermine the confidence in the administration of the justice system.
Our lawyers fight extremely hard to protect an accused person's constitutional guarantee to a reasonable bail and will often challenge decisions which deny bail by appealing those decisions to the Superior Court of Justice.
