Cancellation Of Bail

Sec.  22. Cancellation of bail. – Upon application of the bondsmen, with due notice to the prosecutor, the bail may be cancelled upon surrender of the accused or proof of his death.

The bail shall be deemed automatically cancelled upon acquittal of the accused, dismissal of the case, or execution of the judgment of conviction.

In all instances, the cancellation shall be without prejudice to any liability on the bail.


>     The  same  principles  and  procedure  governing  hearings  on  an application for bail applies to cancellation of bail
>     The same issue as in an application for bail confronts the judge in proceedings  for  cancellation  of  bail.    Hence,  the  similarity  of  the nature and procedure for application for bail and cancellation are
the same
