THE NATURE OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO BAIL

By Beryl A. Ikamari

 

Issue

  1. The circumstances under which bail would be available for persons charged with capital offences

The Constitution of Kenya, 2010,under Article 49(1)(h) provides that an arrested person has the right to be released on bond or bail, or reasonable conditions pending a charge or trial unless there are compelling reasons against the release of such a person.

 

The Criminal Procedure Code, Cap 75,under Section 123(1) is to the effect that persons charged with murder, treason, robbery with violence, and any related offence where the death sentence applies are not entitled to bail

 

Constitutional Law-constitutional rights and freedoms-the rights of arrested persons-the right to bail-circumstances under which bail would be granted as concerns capital offences-the effect of the constitutional right to bail on statutory provisions concerning bail, especially as concerns offences for which the death sentence is applicable-the right to bail in circumstances where the accused person is likely to interfere with witnesses and risks harm from the close relatives of the decease-the Constitution of Kenya, 2010, Article 49(1)(h) and the Criminal Procedure Code, Cap 75, Section 123(1).

 

Criminal Practice and Procedure-the rights of accused persons-the right to bail-the right to bail as concerns offences for which the death penalty is applicable-the effect of the constitutional right to bail on the right to bail in criminal proceedings concerning capital offences-the right to bail in a murder trial where the accused is likely to interfere with witnesses and risks harm from the close relatives of the deceased-the Constitution of Kenya, 2010, Article 49(1)(h) and the Criminal Procedure Code, Cap 75, Section 123(1). Read More...

Held:

  1. Bail is an accused person's constitutional right. However, the right to bail is not absolute and may be denied where the state has compelling reasons for the refusal of bail. The grant of bail is therefore left to the discretion of the court.

 

  1. Bail is available at the discretion of the court even where the accused is charged with an offence for which the death sentence is applicable.

 

  1. In considering whether the court would grant bail, the established principles applicable are the following:
    1. Whether the accused persons were likely to turn up for trial should they be granted bail;
    2. Whether the accused persons were likely to interfere with witnesses;
    3. The nature of the charges;
    4. The severity of the sentence;
    5. The security of the accused if released on bond;
    6. In case of illness of the accused, the nature and severity of the illness; and,
    7. Whether the accused persons have a fixed abode within the jurisdiction of the court.
  2. The prosecution established that the four accused persons were likely to interfere, influence and intimidate the key witnesses and were also at risk of harm from close family members of the deceased if bail was granted.

Application dismissed.

Third Parties Cannot Enforce Compensation Against A Tortfeasor

Reported by Teddy Musiga

Issues:

         i.            Whether death of a person gives rise to a civil liability under common law

       ii.            Whether an employer can sue a third party on the basis of injuries to or death of her employee

      iii.            Whether a suit disclosing no reasonable cause of action should be struck out.

 

Tort - Negligence – claim for damages in respect of amounts paid and costs incurred by the plaintiff to the family of the deceased – when death of a human cannot be complained of as an injury in the tort of negligence - Whether death of a person gives rise to a civil liability under common law

Civil Practice and Procedure - pleadings – striking out – whether a suit disclosing no reasonable cause of action should be struck out

Order 2 Rule 15(a) of the Civil Procedure Rules provided that –

“15 (1) At any stage of proceedings the court may order to be struck out or amended any pleading on the ground that -

a) it discloses no reasonable cause of action or defence in law....”

Held:

1.      Under common law, there is no liability for injury caused by death to any other person other than the deceased.

2.      A person aggrieved by an injury is not at common law entitled to the claims made in those respects. It can only stand where there is a breach of contract or statutory duty.

 

3.      This claim is grounded wholly on negligence and the particulars thereof do not create a cause of action known to law.

 

4.      Section 12 of the Kenya Ports Authority merely gives powers and does not impose any statutory obligation. No relationship can be shown between the ship owners and the defendant and even by way of amendment of the pleadings; the suit still does not create a cause of action known to law.

The plaint is struck out and suit dismissed.

COURT DETERMINES VALIDITY OF NOTICE OF CHANGE IN INTEREST RATE BY BANK THROUGH THE NEWSPAPER

Reported by Emma Kinya & Victor Andande

 

Issues

  1. Which document was applicable to the plaintiffs’ loan facility between the General Terms and Conditions of the Application form of the Loan facility (GTC) and the Charge Instrument?
  2. Which document was to be relied on where there was conflict in provisions on the rate of interest?
  3. Whether publication in the newspaper of notice of change of interest rates by the bank amounted to sufficient notice.
  4. Whether the alteration of the interest rates accruing from a bank loan without due notice being served personally to the plaintiff was in breach of the express provisions of the Charge Instrument.
  5. Whether notice of the change of the interest rates was applicable retrospectively in the circumstances.

Contract-terms of a contract – bank contract - notice – notice of change in interest rate – mode of conveying notice of change in interest rate – where Charge document provided for notice to be effected through personal service - validity of notice published in the newspaper.

 

Contract-terms of a contract – bank contract - due notice – duration of notice – duration of new notice - retrospectively – application of the altered interest rate retrospectively – where Charge Instrument provided for change in interest rate to be effective from the first day of the month next after notification – what amounts to due notice – whether the altered interest rate could have applied retrospectively. Read More...

A dispute arose between the parties arising from a loan facility advanced by the defendants a bank, to the plaintiffs who were customers. It was contended that the plaintiffs fell into arrears which necessitated the defendant to exercise its statutory power of sale to recover the outstanding amount. However, the plaintiff claimed that the bank had habitually altered the rate of interest without duly informing the plaintiff’s in breach of the contract.

Held:

  1. Where the lender opted to use the media as a form of communication, it ought to have expressly stated so in the security instrument. Thus the publication in the newspaper of the change in interest rate was in contravention of the Charge instrument.

 

  1. The purpose of the notice to a borrower was to put him on notice of the intended increase or decrease in liability. With the usual penal consequence that followed default in making an adequate repayment on the stipulated time, media publication would not have given a borrower adequate, convenient and effective notice to be able to carry out his obligations under the Charge document to adjust the repayment on time.

 

  1. Since the Bank could render a Statement of Account on monthly basis to all its customers, it would likewise have made commercial sense if the Bank notified its borrowers individually of changes in the interest rates that would increase the borrower’s liability or burden as and when they arose.

 

  1. Any publication in the newspapers of the change in the rate of interest was not in accordance with the contract between the parties and did not affect the rate of interest on the facility.

 

  1. Whilst a Letter of offer could have incorporated the General Terms and Conditions (GTC) of a lender, once a subsequent document of contract such as a Charge was executed, it was expected that all terms and conditions contained in the Letter of offer or such GTC were expressly incorporated or they automatically merged with the Charge.

 

  1. Where a conflict arose between the terms and conditions in the letter of offer and the Charge, the provisions of the Charge were to prevail because the Charge document was the later in time and it was assumed that when the parties executed the same, they were aware of the provisions of the earlier documents.

 

  1. Whilst the Defendant had the right to vary its rate of interest, notice of such variation should have been given to the Plaintiffs in terms of the Charge Instrument. Thus, since the GTC had not provided for the mode of giving notice, the only way notice of change of interest could have been effected was as provided for in the Charge Instrument.

 

  1. Since there was variance in the rate of interest provided for by the letter of offer and the Charge, the Charge document would prevail because it had been signed by both parties whereas the Letter of Offer had been signed by the defendant only. Therefore, the interest rate would have been as per the Charge document until there was service of change of interest rate.

 

  1. The bank letter that purported to apply the change in the interest rate retrospectively was contrary to the Charge instrument which required that such change would have been effective from the first day of the month next after notification.

Costs of the application to be in the cause.
