LMM(86)28 Pre-Trial Remands in Custody

Hong Kong has not as yet followed the lead taken by many other Commonwealth countries by codifying the law of bail, and setting out in statutory form the principles upon which bail applications should be considered. This topic is, however, being considered by the Law Reform Commission, and it is hoped that a comprehensive Bail Ordinance will be introduced in the reasonably near future. Because the police have extensive powers of arrest which they use even for comparatively minor offences, the proportion of defendants for whom the question of bail must be considered is high.
