Former US President Donald Trump will proceed to pay $200,000 in a Georgia court that is set to try him for his alleged actions aimed at overturning the result of the 2020 election.

The news became known from documents that were made public yesterday, from journalistic information and also from an announcement by the interested party himself.

The 77-year-old Republican tycoon and his 18 co-defendants in the case theoretically have until noon Friday [σ.σ. τοπική ώρα· ως τις 19:00 ώρα Ελλάδας] to appear at the Fulton County Courthouse in Atlanta, the state capital.

He will go the day after tomorrow, Thursday, the CNN television network reported earlier, citing unnamed sources.

Mr. Trump confirmed this, through Truth Social, a platform that is his personal creation.

Ahead of the deadline, his lawyers agreed to a $200,000 bond to remain out on parole.

Four other co-defendants have also announced that they have agreed to post $10,000 to $100,000 each as bail to remain out on parole, in other words not to be jailed.

The condition for this is that they do not break any law while they are free, refrain from any threat against officials of justice and do not communicate with each other except through their lawyers.

A grand jury — made up of citizens with broad investigative powers — empaneled by District Attorney Fannie Willis indicted Mr. Trump and 18 others on Aug. 14 for allegedly illegally trying to overturn the results of the elections. 2020 election in Georgia, which was won by the current Democratic President Joe Biden.

They were prosecuted under a law that is generally used to fight organized crime and provides for prison terms of five to twenty years.

This is the fourth criminal prosecution against the former head of state, who has long announced that he will seek re-election to the presidency in November 2024 and remains a favorite in the Republican internal process.

The area around the court’s jail on Rice Street in Atlanta will be put on a “hard lockdown” when he appears to surrender and post bail to prevent Mr. Trump from being remanded in custody, the county sheriff said earlier yesterday. He did not specify when exactly it is expected to take place.
