New Bail Laws

I welcome Jack Straw's comment of reviewing the current Bail Laws after recent events of the accused went on a rampage to commit murder or more offences awaiting trail. Traditionally accused who are awaiting trail are given the opportunity to be bailed if they satisfy bail laws under Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 in accordance with the Bail Act 1976.

I think in many cases, the problem with judges issuing bail is the fear of the accused absconding or most likely to commit further offences while on bail. This is what the current Bail Laws have stated. However, I am wondering what would the House of Commons come up to if they are going to change the bail laws pertinent to a murder trail. That would be interesting though.

I will be looking forward to seeing the changes soon.
