If, from the examination before the High Court of American Samoa, it appears that the person held is the person charged with having committed the crime alleged, that he probably committed the crime and, except in cases arising under 46.0905, that he has fled from justice, the High Court of American Samoa must commit him to jail by a warrant reciting the accusation, for such a time specified in the warrant as will enable the arrest of the accused to be made under a warrant of the Governor on a requisition of the executive authority of the state having jurisdiction of the offense unless the accused gives bail as provided in this chapter, or until he is legally discharged.
