Remand in Bermuda
July 30, 2011
What does “remand” really mean in Bermuda. The definition of remand according to an online source is “the imprisonment of suspects before trial or sentencing”. I read articles in the daily paper, and have even been to court cases before! I read and even hear that the defendant has been “remanded” into custody!
According to my online source the accused will be held into custody until the trial and possibly sentencing! So how is it that in Bermuda, defendants are “remanded” and then I see them at my local grocery store? This is just something to ponder!
