HI.

Thank you for your question . My name is Jo and I will try to help with this.

If you are subject to police bail then one condition, whether express or not, is that you surrender at the time appointed.

They are able to bring forward the bail back date and failing to attend would lead to a warrant being issued.

They would have to show that proper instruction of the change was given and that a reasonable amount of time was allowed for a person to attend.

However, on your main point, they can bring forward a bail back date.

Sorry if thats bad news.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
