Bail Application in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • R (A) v Secretary of State for the Home Department
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 30 July 2007

    I accept the submission on behalf of the Home Secretary that where there is a risk of absconding and a refusal to accept voluntary repatriation, those are bound to be very important factors, and likely often to be decisive factors, in determining the reasonableness of a person's detention, provided that deportation is the genuine purpose of the detention. The risk of absconding is important because it threatens to defeat the purpose for which the deportation order was made.

  • R (Vickers) v West London Magistrates Court
    • Queen's Bench Division (Administrative Court)
    • 11 July 2003

    There is no dispute between the parties that section 7(5), in effect, involves a two-stage operation to be carried out by the justices. First a decision must be made as to whether or not there has been a breach of a condition. If there has been no breach of a condition then the bailed person is entitled to be admitted to bail on precisely the same conditions —in other words, bail continues.

  • Hurnam v State of Mauritius
    • Privy Council
    • 15 December 2005

    It is obvious that a person charged with a serious offence, facing a severe penalty if convicted, may well have a powerful incentive to abscond or interfere with witnesses likely to give evidence against him, and this risk will often be particularly great in drugs cases. Where there are reasonable grounds to infer that the grant of bail may lead to such a result, which cannot be effectively eliminated by the imposition of appropriate conditions, they will afford good grounds for refusing bail.

    The reasoning of the Supreme Court in Noordally, Maloupe (save for the penultimate sentence), Labonne and Deelchand, all cited above, is consistent with the jurisprudence on the European Convention, which recognises that the right to personal liberty, although not absolute ( X v United Kingdom (Application No 8097/77, unreported, E Comm HR)), is nonetheless a right that is at the heart of all political systems that purport to abide by the rule of law and protects the individual against arbitrary detention ( Winterwerp v Netherlands (1979) 2 EHRR 387, para 37; Engel v Netherlands(No 1) (1976) 1 EHRR 647, para 58; Bozano v France (1986) 9 EHRR 297, para 54).

  • R Mh v Sshd
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 14 October 2010

    There can, however, be a realistic prospect of removal without it being possible to specify or predict the date by which, or period within which, removal can reasonably be expected to occur and without any certainty that removal will occur at all. There must be a sufficient prospect of removal to warrant continued detention when account is taken of all other relevant factors.

  • R v Hayward, R v Jones (Anthony), R v Purvis
    • Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)
    • 31 January 2001

    This appellant, as it seems to us, had, clearly and expressly by his conduct, waived his right to be present and to be legally represented.

  • Amand v Secretary of State for Home Affairs and Another
    • House of Lords
    • 21 July 1942
