288. Where the judge orders that a trial be held, he may, upon application, release from custody, on the conditions he determines, in particular, the furnishing of security, a defendant who has been detained under the judgment rendered in first instance unless he is satisfied that the defendant will abscond or will not keep the peace until judgment is rendered on the new trial; a judge ordering continuation of the detention of the defendant shall make any order to expedite the new trial in first instance.
Prior notice of at least one clear day of the application for release from custody must be served on the prosecutor.
