If you fail to appear in Court on the required date and time, the Court will issue a Warrant of Arrest against you and this may result in bail being refused in future.
For the bailor, a Notice to Show Cause will be issued to the bailor to attend Court on a specified date and time and to “show case” that is to explain to the Judge as to why the bail amount should not be forfeited. If the Judge orders a forfeiture of any bail amount, and if the forfeited sum is not paid, the Court may proceed to recover the amount by issuing a Warrant of Attachment. A Warrant of Attachment is an enforcement procedure to recover the monies due, by way of sale of the property/properties belonging to the bailor. If the forfeited sum cannot be recovered fully by such attachment and sale, the bailor is liable to imprisonment for a term, which may extend to 6 months.
