police bail
 n.— «The police had managed to establish the identity of the sender and had interviewed him with regards to the correspondence sent. The person had admitted he had sent the anonymous email but denied having sent the letter. Subsequently the accused had been given “police bail” so as to return and pursue being interviewed after the investigations by the Cyber Crime Unit were concluded. The “police bail” had been renewed six times and was revoked after the investigations were concluded. The person was not obliged to sign at the police headquarters everyday.» —“‘Police Bail’ a normal procedure” by Alan Fenech in Valletta Di-ve News (Malta) May 16, 2007.
