Former US President Donald Trump will post $200,000 bail in a Georgia court to try him for his actions in the 2020 election in the key southeastern state, according to court documents released Monday.

Mr. Trump and his 18 co-defendants in this case have until noon Friday (4:00 p.m. GMT) to report to the Fulton County Court jail in Atlanta, the state capital.

In view of this deadline, his lawyers have agreed to pay $ 200,000 in bail, without indicating the date on which he will appear in court.

Four other of his co-defendants also agreed to pay bail ranging from $10,000 to $100,000 each.

Posting bail allows defendants not to be remanded in custody, provided they are not breaking any laws, refraining from threats, and not communicating with each other other than through their lawyers.

A grand jury – panel of citizens with investigative powers – appointed by Atlanta County Attorney Fani Willis on August 14 indicted Mr. Trump and 18 others for their alleged wrongful attempts to obtain the reversal of the result of the 2020 election won in this state by the current Democratic President Joe Biden.

They are prosecuted under a law on organized crime which provides for sentences of five to twenty years in prison.

This is the fourth criminal indictment of the former president, who is running for the White House again and remains the favorite for the Republican primaries.
