Murder committed every ten days by criminal on bail
And being more serious.
Holding someone on remand is taking away their liberty without a trial. It\’s therefore something done only when there is good evidence of flight risk or of the possibility of nobbling witnesses.
That 4 or 5 % of murders in the country are committed by those on bail reflects rather that a decent chunk of the criminal population are on bail at any one moment. Caught for something an awaiting trial.
The easiest way to reduce this particular number might well be to reduce the gap between arrest and or charging and actual trial. You know, speed up the court system?
