Criminal Motions

Various applications may be made by either the accused or the Public Prosecutor, either in the course of or pending criminal proceedings heard by the Supreme Court. The applications commonly arising in this respect include:

  • bail pending trial or appeal;
  • variation of the amount of bail;
  • seeking to adduce additional evidence
  • extension of time to file the Notice of Appeal or the Petition of Appeal;
  • referral of a question of law of public interest to the Court of Appeal by way of a Criminal Reference; and
  • request for production of papers and documents.

The public may attend Criminal Motions which are heard in open court.
