Author van der Berg
Edition 3rd

 

The third edition of Bail provides a critical discussion of past and current bail law, including the impact of the Constitution on statutory interpretation and practice.

Where the law remains unclear – often as a result of divergent High Court decisions – the author provides guidelines to the practitioner and the lower courts alike. He makes concrete suggestions, where necessary, on the application of the law in a setting where tension between the liberty of the individual and the troubling crime rate calls for a measured and practical approach.

This edition features extensive quotations from the authorities, with English translations of Afrikaans judgments. The book also includes an invaluable ‘Quickfinder’ section in which the most important bail procedures are set out in a clear, concise and easily accessible format. Notice of motion templates are also provided.
