"A child or young person will also have his/her case tried in an adult court if charged jointly with an adult (s3(1)CAP44).The trial will not take into account the juvenile’s age, for example the trial will not be held in camera - the juvenile will go through the same trial process as their adult co-defendant. However the judge will take into account the juvenile’s age when passing sentence. For example, while the adult defendant might be sentenced to imprisonment in Pademba Road (the adult prison in Freetown), the juvenile defendant will be sentenced to a period in the Approved School."

(i) Where any trial is unreasonably delayed through no fault or strategem of the accused, the arrested person must be released on what one might call "constitutional bail". Such bail is available and clearly overrides any prohibitions in the lesser laws so that Article 13(3) would apply to any unreasonably delayed case, whatever the charge and whatever s.43 of the Act., or s.123 of the C.P.C. or any other similar law may say (ii) There is nothing in the Constitution which invalidates a law imposing a total prohibition on the release on bail of a person reasonably suspected of having committed a criminal offence, provided that he is brought to trial within a reasonable time after he has been arrested and detained (iii) Before the stage when a trial becomes unreasonably delayed, it is constitutionally permissible to authorise deprivation of liberty, if authorised by law, and without making any provision for bail under any circumstances
