Written undertakings executed by the defendant... that the defendant will, while at liberty as a result of an order fixing bail and of the execution of a bail bond in satisfaction thereof, appear in a designated criminal action or proceeding when his attendance is required.
Black's Law Dictionary, eighth edition
It appears to me that in order to consider the gravity of the alleged offence the Tribunal would have to weigh the gravity in the same manner as a national judge determining urgent applications, for example in injunctive proceedings, and find whether a prima facie case has been made. In carrying out that exercise, the Tribunal will not be making any finding on the merits per se but will be determining whether or not the detaining State violated the provisions of article 73 of the Convention or whether the vessel of the applicant State violated the fisheries legislation of the detaining State.
