Golding’s bail conditions

Some people are claiming it’s an injustice that Golding was arrested on Saturday for repeatedly breaching bail. They say it’s expired and so the whole thing is a stitch up.

The fact is that Golding’s bail was scheduled to run until after this weekend and in the interim he was ordered to appear every Saturday in Bromley. The fact that the idea was mooted that this was in error does not change the fact that these bail conditions have not been lifted by a court.

By assuming that his bail conditions are invalid Golding has taken the law into his own hands and is in breach of bail. The arrest was both appropriate and legal.

Check the dates for yourself. It’s all very straightforward.
