Where do you apply for bail?
All bail applications are submitted and processed by the Bail Centre in the State Courts.
When can bail be returned?
The duties of the bailor cease when the Court, has made a final decision (e.g. when the accused is found to be not guilty of the offence (acquitted), or is found to be guilty of the offence (convicted) and sentenced.
The bailor can then take back the items which he has deposited with the Court. This is processed by the Finance Section of the State Courts.
Can the bailor withdraw as such?
The bailor can withdraw from standing bail for the accused at any time before the case is completed. If the accused cannot find a substitute bailor, he will be remanded in prison until the date of his conviction or acquittal.
