Short Update: Ireland’s District Courts drops requirement for bail suspects to appear at hearings

FairTrialsAdmin - March 30, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Court closures, Remote Justice

District courts in Ireland have indicated that people released on bail no longer need to attend hearings in person. Lawyers representing clients out on bail can choose whether to attend hearings, while those representing clients in custody are advised to attend. People released on bail are allowed to attend court but no longer required to. Video-linked court proceedings are being adopted and prisons are facilitating access to video linked for consultations.
