(5)     Where paragraph (4) applies –

(a)     the record of the decision shall include the reasons for granting bail; and

(b)     if requested to do so by the prosecutor, the court shall provide the prosecutor with a copy of the record of the decision as soon as practicable after the record is made.

11      The grant of bail subject to conditions

(1)     Except as provided under paragraph (2), the court shall not impose conditions on the grant of bail to a defendant.

(2)     A defendant may be required to comply, before he or she is released on bail or later, with such conditions as appear to the court to be necessary –

(b)     to secure that the defendant attends a parish hall inquiry;

(e)     for the purpose of enabling inquiries or a report to be made; or

(f)      for the defendant’s own protection or, if the defendant is under the age of 18, for the defendant’s own welfare or in the defendant’s own interests.

12      The grant of bail subject to a security or surety

(1)     Before a defendant is released on bail the court may, as a condition of bail, require the defendant to do either or both of the following –

(a)     provide a security for the defendant’s surrender to custody which shall be –

(i)      of such an amount as the court may order, and

(ii)      deposited with the Viscount before the defendant is released from the custody of the court;

(b)     propose a person who agrees to stand as surety to secure the defendant’s surrender to custody.

(2)     The security referred to in paragraph (1)(a) may be provided by the defendant or on his or her behalf.

(3)     In considering the suitability of a proposed surety, the court may have regard (amongst other things) to the surety’s –

(a)     financial resources;

(b)     character and any previous convictions; and

(c)     proximity (whether as an associated person, in place of residence or otherwise) to the defendant.

(4)     If the court is satisfied as to the suitability of the proposed surety, it shall approve that person to stand as the defendant’s surety.

(5)     Upon approving the surety, the court shall fix the amount in which the surety is to be bound and Article 14 shall apply in respect of that surety if the defendant fails to surrender to custody.

(6)     Where bail is granted subject to a surety, it is also a condition of that bail that if the surety believes at any time that the defendant is unlikely to surrender to custody –

(a)     the surety must inform a police officer forthwith; and

(b)     the surety must as soon as practicable deliver to a police officer a statement in writing by the surety confirming the information.

(7)     If a parent or guardian of a defendant under the age of 18 agrees to stand as surety for the defendant, for the purposes of this Article, the parent or guardian may be required to secure that the defendant complies with any other conditions imposed on him or her under Article 11.

(8)     However –

(b)     the parent or guardian –

(i)      cannot be required to secure compliance with any condition to which his or her agreement does not extend, and

(ii)      cannot in respect of those conditions to which his or her agreement does extend, be bound in a sum greater than a sum equivalent to level 1 on the standard scale.

(9)     Article 14 also applies in respect of a surety who, under paragraph (7), is required to secure that the defendant complies with any other conditions imposed on him or her under Article 11 and the defendant fails to comply with any such conditions.

(10)    If, at any time, the court orders a reduction in the amount of security previously ordered to be deposited under paragraph (1)(a), the Viscount shall, as soon as is reasonably practicable, repay the excess amount of security to the defendant or the person who provided it on the defendant’s behalf.

(11)    The amount of security deposited with the Viscount under paragraph (1)(a) shall, unless ordered as forfeited under Article 13, be repaid to the defendant or the person who provided it on the defendant’s behalf –

(a)     when the condition of bail to provide a security is lifted; or

(b)     at the conclusion of the proceedings,

whichever occurs first.

13      Forfeiture of security

(1)     Where a defendant has provided a security under Article 12(1)(a), or a security is provided on his or her behalf under Article 12(2) and the court is satisfied that the defendant has failed to surrender to custody then, unless it appears that the defendant had a reasonable excuse for that failure, the court may order the forfeiture of the security.

(2)     If the court orders the forfeiture of a security under paragraph (1), the court may order that the forfeiture extends to such amount less than the full value of the security as it thinks fit.

(3)     An order under paragraph (1) shall, unless previously revoked, take effect at the end of 21 days beginning with the day on which it is made.

(4)     An application may be made to the court to show that the defendant had a reasonable excuse for his or her failure to surrender to custody.

(5)     An application under paragraph (4) shall be made in the prescribed form, and may be made –

(a)     by or on behalf of the defendant; or

(b)     by the person who provided the security.

(6)     If, on application under paragraph (4), the court is satisfied that the defendant did, after all, have a reasonable excuse for his or her failure to surrender to custody, the court may order –

(a)     remission of the full value of the forfeited security; or

(b)     that the forfeiture extends to such amount less than the full value of the security as it thinks fit.

(7)     An application under paragraph (4) may be made before or after the order for forfeiture has taken effect, but shall not be entertained unless the court is satisfied that the prosecutor was given reasonable notice of the applicant's intention to make it.

(8)     A security which is forfeited under paragraph (1) shall be administered by the Viscount as if it were a fine imposed by the court.

(9)     Where an order is made under paragraph (6), any money which would have fallen to be repaid to the defendant or other person who provided the security, shall remain deposited with the Viscount to be repaid to the defendant or other person, in accordance with Article 12(11).

14      Surety’s liability where defendant fails to surrender to custody or breaches conditions

(1)     This paragraph applies where –

(2)     Where paragraph (1)(a) applies, the court shall summons the surety to appear before the court at the time, and on the date specified in the summons to show cause as to why he or she should not be required to pay the amount in which he or she is bound.

(3)     Where paragraph (1)(b) applies, the court may, if it is satisfied that the surety has failed to secure the defendant’s compliance with his or her conditions of bail, summons the surety to appear before the court at the time, and on the date specified in the summons to show cause as to why he or she should not be required to pay the amount in which he or she is bound.

15      Right of prosecutor to appeal against Magistrate’s decision to grant bail

(1)     This Article applies where the Magistrate, having heard representations from the prosecutor that bail should not be granted to a defendant who is charged with or convicted of an offence punishable with imprisonment, grants bail to the defendant.

(2)     The prosecutor may, subject to paragraph (3) and in accordance with paragraph (4), appeal to the Royal Court against the granting of bail.

(5)     Upon oral notice of appeal being given, the Magistrate shall remand the defendant in custody until the appeal is determined or otherwise disposed of.

(7)     The hearing of an appeal under this Article shall commence as soon as is reasonably practicable after oral notice is given under paragraph (4)(a).

(8)     The Royal Court, when hearing an appeal under this Article, may remand the defendant in custody or grant bail subject to such conditions as it thinks fit.

(9)     In the case of a defendant under the age of 18, the reference in paragraph (1) to an offence punishable with imprisonment is to be read as a reference to an offence which would be so punishable in the case of a defendant aged 18 or over.

(10)    There shall be no right of appeal against a decision of the Royal Court under this Article.

(c)     interfere with witnesses or otherwise obstruct the course of justice, whether in relation to the defendant or any other person.
