Every such warrant shall remain in force until it is cancelled by the court which issued it or until it is executed. The person executing a warrant of arrest shall notify the substance thereof to the person arrested, and if so required by the person arrested shall show him the warrant or a copy thereof signed by the person issuing the same. The person executing a warrant of arrest shall subject to the provisions section 51 as to security without unnecessary delay bring the person arrested before the court before which he is required by law to produce such person, and he shall endorse on the warrant the time when and the place where the arrest was made.
Provided always that upon the execution of such warrant the provisions of section 58 shall apply,. When a warrant directed to a fiscal is to be executed outside the jurisdiction of the court to which he is appointed he shall endorse it to the fiscal of the court within the local limits of whose jurisdiction, the warrant is to be executed and shall thereupon forward the same by post or otherwise to such fiscal, who upon receipt thereof shall cause such warrant to be executed in the same way as if it had been originally directed to him.
Provided that if the offence be bailable and the person arrested be ready and willing to give bail to the satisfaction of the court before which he shall have been brought, or a direction has been endorsed under section 51 on the warrant and such person is ready and willing to give the security required by such direction, such last-mentioned court shall take such bail or security as the case may be and forward the bond to the court which issued the warrant.
Where a police officer has reasonable grounds to believe that a person is one for whose arrest a warrant of arrest has been issued, he may notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Chapter arrest that person in execution of the warrant although the warrant is not in his possession for the time being. If within one year from the date of the attachment any person whose property is or has been at the disposal of the Minister under section 61 appears voluntarily or is apprehended and brought before the court by whose order the property was attached and proves to the satisfaction of such court that he did not abscond or conceal himself for the purpose of avoiding execution of the warrant and that he had not such notice of the proclamation as to enable him to attend within the time specified therein, as in property, or if the same has been sold the net proceeds of the sale or if part only thereof has been sold the net proceeds of the sale and the residue of the property, shall after satisfying there out all costs incurred in consequence of the attachment be delivered to him.
The court may if it thinks fit specify in the warrant the particular place or part thereof to which only the search or inspection shall extend, and the person charged with the execution of such warrant shall then search or inspect only the place or part so specified. The provisions of sections 20, 50, 52, 56 and 57 shall so far as may be apply to all search warrants issued under this Chapter.
The person executing the search warrant shall make a list of all things seized in the course of the search and of the places in which they are respectively found and shall sign such list. The occupant of the place searched or some person on his behalf shall in every instance be permitted to attend during the search and a copy of the list prepared under section 75 , signed by the person executing the warrant, shall be delivered to such occupant or person.
Any court may if it thinks fit impound any document or other thing produced before it under this Code. Whenever a Magistrate receives information that any person is likely to commit a breach of the peace or to do any wrongful act that may probably occasion a breach of the peace within the local limits of the jurisdiction of the court of such Magistrate, or that there is within such limits a person who is likely to commit a breach of the peace or do any wrongful act as aforesaid in any place beyond such limits the Magistrate may in manner hereinafter provided require such person to show cause why he should not be ordered to execute a bond with or without sureties for keeping the peace for such period not exceeding two years as the court thinks fit to fix.
Whenever a Magistrate receives information that any person within the local limits of the jurisdiction of the court of such Magistrate is an habitual robber, housebreaker, or thief or an habitual receiver of stolen property knowing the same to have been stolen or that he habitually commits extortion or in order to the committing of extortion habitually puts or attempts to put persons in fear of injury or that he is an habitual protector or harbourer of thieves or that he is an habitual abider in the concealment or disposal of stolen property or that he is a notorious bad liver or is a dangerous character, such Magistrate may in manner hereinafter provided require such person to show cause why he should not be ordered to execute a bond with sureties for his good behaviour for such period not exceeding two years as the Magistrate thinks fit to fix.
When a Magistrate acting under section 81 or section 82 or section 83 deems it necessary to require any person to show cause under such section he shall if such person is not present in court issue a summons requiring him to appear, or when such person is in custody but not present in court a warrant directing the officer in whose custody he is to bring before the court:. Provided that whenever it appears to such Magistrate upon the report of a peace officer or upon other information the substance of which report or information shall be recorded by such Magistrate that there is reason to fear the commission of a breach of the peace and that such breach of the peace cannot be prevented otherwise than by the immediate arrest of such person, the Magistrate may at any time issue a warrant for his arrest.
Every summons or warrant issued under section 84 shall contain a brief statement of the substance of the information on which such summons or warrant is issued. An appeal shall not lie against any order made under this subsection. If upon such inquiry it is proved that it is necessary for keeping the peace or maintaining good behaviour, as the case may be, that the person in respect of whom the inquiry is made should execute a bond with or without sureties, the Magistrate shall make an order accordingly;. If upon such inquiry it is not proved that it is necessary for keeping the peace or maintaining good behaviour, as the case may be, that the person in respect of whom the inquiry is made should execute a bond, the Magistrate shall make an entry on the record to that effect, and if such person is in custody only for the purpose of the inquiry shall release him, or if such person is not in custody shall discharge him.
Provided that the court may, if it thinks fit so to do, allow time not exceeding one month for furnishing the security:. Provided further that where the court is of opinion that time should not be allowed it shall record the reasons for refusal of time. The period for which security is required by an order made under the preceding sections of this Chapter shall commence—. A court may refuse to accept any surety offered on the ground that for reasons to be recorded by the court such surety is an unfit person. If any person ordered to give security under the preceding sections of this Chapter does not give such security on or before the date on which the period for which such security is to be given commences, he shall be committed to prison to undergo the term of imprisonment imposed under section 89, or, if he is already in prison, be detained in prison until such term expires, or until, before the expiration of such term, he gives the security to the court which made the order requiring it, or to the superintendent or jailer of the prison in which he is detained.
Imprisonment for failure to give security for good behaviour may be rigorous or simple as the court in each case directs. Every such order shall have the same effect as the original order. Any Magistrate or police officer not below the rank of Inspector of Police may command any unlawful assembly or any assembly of five or more persons likely to cause a disturbance of the public peace to disperse, and it shall thereupon be the duty of the members of such assembly to disperse accordingly.
If upon being so commanded any such assembly does not disperse or if without being so commanded it conducts itself in such a manner as to show a determination not to disperse, the Magistrate or the police officer may proceed to disperse such assembly by the use of such force as is reasonably necessary to disperse the assembly and may require the assistance of any person not being a member of the Army, Navy or Air Force, whether of Sri Lanka or of any other country, acting as such for the purpose of dispersing such assembly and if necessary arresting and confining the persons who form part of it in order to disperse such assembly or that they may be punished according to law.
If any such assembly cannot be otherwise dispersed and it is necessary for the public security that it should be dispersed, a Magistrate or the Government Agent of the District or any police officer not below the rank of Superintendent of Police may cause it to be dispersed by requiring any commissioned or non-commissioned officer in command of any personnel of the Sri Lanka Army, Navy or Air Force, to disperse such assembly by military force and to arrest and confine such persons as form part of it as may be necessary in order to disperse the assembly or to have them punished according to law.
Every such commissioned or non-commissioned officer shall obey such requisition in such manner as he thinks fit, but in so doing he shall use as little force and do as little injury to person and property as may be consistent with dispersing the assembly and arresting and detaining such persons. When the public security is manifestly endangered by any such assembly and when a Magistrate, the Government Agent or a police officer not below the rank of Superintendent of Police cannot be communicated with, any commissioned officer of the Sri Lanka Army, Navy or Air Force may disperse such assembly by military force and may arrest arid confine any persons forming part of it in order to disperse such assembly or that they may be punished according to law; but if while he is acting under this section it becomes practicable for him to communicate with the Magistrate or Government Agent or a police officer not below the rank of Superintendent of Police he shall do so and shall thereafter obey the instructions of such Magistrate or Government Agent or police officer as to whether he shall or shall not continue such action.
If such person does not perform such act or appear and move to have the order set aside or modified as required by subsection 1 he shall be liable to the penalty prescribed in that behalf in section of the Penal Code and the order shall be made absolute :. Provided that if such person be a corporate body every director thereof shall be liable to the penalty hereinbefore prescribed unless such director proves that such default was not occasioned by any act of his or by any omission on his part.
Procedure on order being made absolute. When an order has been made absolute under section or section the Magistrate shall give notice of the same to the person against whom the order was made and shall further require him to perform the act directed by the order within a time specified in the notice and inform him that in case of disobedience he will be liable to the penalties provided by subsection 2 of section If such other property is without such limits the order shall authorise its attachment and sale when endorsed by a Magistrate within the local limits of whose jurisdiction the property to be attached is found.
A Magistrate may order any person not to repeat or continue a public nuisance as defined in the Penal Code or any special or local law. Every peace officer may interpose for the purpose of preventing and shall to the best of his ability prevent the commission of any cognizable offence. Every peace officer receiving information of an attempt to commit any cognizable offence shall communicate such information to the officer to whom he is immediately subordinate or to some other officer whose duty it is to prevent or take cognizance of the commission of any such offence.
A peace officer knowing of an attempt to commit any cognizable offence may arrest without orders from a Magistrate and without a warrant the person so attempting if it appears to such officer that the commission of the offence cannot be otherwise prevented. A peace officer may of his own authority interpose to prevent any injury attempted to be committed in his view to any public property movable or immovable or the removal of injury of any public landmark or buoy or other mark used for navigation. It shall be the duty of every peace officer to give immediate information to an inspector of weights and measures of any breach of any provision of any enactment for the time being in force relating to weights and measures and at the request of any such inspector to assist him in carrying out the provisions of any such enactment.
The Minister may appoint any person by name or office to be an inquirer for any area the limits of which shall be specified in such appointment. Provided that if it is not possible for the officer or inquirer to record the information in the language in which it is given the officer or inquirer shall request that the information be given in writing. If the informant is unable to give it in writing, the officer or inquirer shall record the information in one of the national languages after recording the reasons for doing so and shall read over the record to the informant or interpret it in the language he understands.
Such Information Book shall be in such form as the Minister may provide by regulations made in that behalf:. Provided that until the Minister by regulations provides the form of the Information Book, the form or forms in use on the day immediately preceding the appointed date shall continue to be valid for use.
Procedure where cognizable offence is suspected or breach of the peace apprehended. Provided further, that an officer in charge of a police station may depute one of his subordinate officers to proceed to the spot to make such investigation and to take such measures as may be necessary for the discovery and arrest of the offender. Any police officer or inquirer making an investigation under this Chapter may by order in writing require the attendance before himself of any person being within the limits of the station of such police officer or any adjoining station or within the local limits of the jurisdiction of such inquirer who, from the information given or otherwise, appears to be acquainted with the circumstances of the case, and such person shall attend as so required.
If any person when required to attend by an inquirer refuses or fails to do so, the inquirer may thereupon in his discretion issue a warrant to secure the attendance of such person as required by such order as aforesaid. The whole of such statement shall be recorded in full in the manner set out in section 2. If the police officer or inquirer asks any question in clarification such question and the answer given thereto shall be recorded in form of question and answer.
Such record shall be shown or read to such person or if he does not understand the language in which it is written, it shall be interpreted to him in a language he understands and he shall be at liberty to explain or add to his statement. The person making the statement shall then sign that statement immediately at the place where the statement is concluded.
The police officer or inquirer recording the statement shall append below each statement recorded by him the following certificate—. If such statement is not recorded in the Information Book, a true copy thereof shall as soon as may be convenient be entered by such police officer or inquirer in the Information Book.
Any alterations in such statement shall be initiated by the person making it and any portion of the statement that requires to be deleted as a result of the alteration shall be scored off in such a manner as would not make that portion illegible. A statement made by any person to a police officer in the course of any investigation may be used in accordance with the provisions of the Evidence Ordinance except for the purpose of corroborating the testimony of such person in court:. Provided that a statement made by an accused person in the course of any investigation shall only be used to prove that he made a different statement at a different time.
Anything in this subsection shall not be deemed to apply to any statement falling within the provisions of section 27 of the Evidence Ordinance or to prevent any statement made by a person in the course of any investigation being used as evidence in a charge under section of the Penal Code. Save as otherwise provided for in section neither the accused nor his agents shall be entitled to call for such statements, nor shall be or they be entitled to see them merely because they are referred to by the court but if they are used by the police officer or inquirer or witness who made them to refresh his memory, or if the court uses them for the purpose of contradicting such police officer or inquirer or witness the provisions of the Evidence Ordinance, section or section , as the case may be, shall apply:.
Provided that where a preliminary inquiry under Chapter XV is being held in respect of any offence, such statements of witnesses as have up to then been recorded shall, on the application of the accused, be made available to him for his perusal in open court during the inquiry. Any inquirer or police officer shall not offer or make or cause to be offered or made any inducement, threat, or promise to any person charged with an offence to induce such person to make any statement with reference to the charge against such person.
But any inquirer or police officer shall not prevent or discourage by any caution or otherwise any person from making in the course of any investigation under this Chapter any statement which he may be disposed to make of his own free will. When any subordinate police officer has made any investigation under this Chapter, he shall report the result of such investigation to the officer in charge of the police station. The provisions of section shall apply to every such warrant.
If at the end of the said period of fifteen days proceedings are not instituted the Magistrate may subject to subsection 3 either discharge the suspect or require him to execute a bond to appear if and when so required. Provided however that such person shall, subject to the provisions of the Criminal Procedure Special Provisions Law, No. The court may on an application in that behalf being made by an officer in charge of a police station authorise him or any other named police officer to take the suspect in the company of an officer of the Prisons Department from place to place other than to a police station if in the opinion of such court such action is considered necessary for the purpose of the investigation:.
Provided that during the period a police officer has access to a suspect or takes him from place to place under the provisions of this subsection, the suspect shall be deemed to be an accused person in the custody of such police officer for the purpose of the application of subsection 1 of section 27 of the Evidence Ordinance. Every inquirer shall, in addition to the powers hereinbefore mentioned within the local limits of his jurisdiction, have the following powers—. Any Magistrate having jurisdiction to hold an inquiry into any offence which is being investigated by an inquirer may at any stage withdraw the case from such inquirer and himself inquire into and try such case or commit the same for trial.
If in the report there is no allegation that the suspect has committed or been concerned in the committing of any offence the Magistrate shall discharge him. If the report alleges that the suspect has committed or been concerned in committing an offence he shall be prosecuted in accordance with the provisions of this Code. Anything in this Chapter contained shall not be construed to restrict the powers or duties vested in or imposed on police officers by this Code or any other enactment. The Government medical officer shall report to the police officer setting out the result of the examination.
Where such an order is made such person shall submit to an examination by such Government medical officer who shall report to the Magistrate setting out the result of the examination.
Title 18 of the United States Code - Wikipedia
Every Magistrate to whom application is made in that behalf shall assist the conduct of an investigation by making and issuing appropriate orders and processes of court and may, in particular hold, or authorise the holding of, an identification parade for the purpose of ascertaining the identity of the offender, and may for such purpose require a suspect or any other person to participate in such parade, allow a witness to make his identification from a concealed position and make or cause to be made a record of the proceedings of such parade.
Anything to the contrary in this or any other law notwithstanding it shall be lawful for any police officer not below the rank of Assistant Superintendent of Police to take over at any stage any investigation under this Chapter for any offence and to conduct and direct such investigation and for such purpose to cause the investigation or any part of it to be conducted by any police officer of his choice or by a team of specially selected police officers drawn from any part of the Island. Except as provided in Chapter XXI any peace officer or person in authority shall not offer or make or cause to be offered or made any inducement, threat, or promise to any person charged with an offence to induce such person to make any statement having reference to the charge against such person.
But any peace officer or other person shall not prevent or discourage by any caution or otherwise any person from making any statement which he may be disposed to make of his own free will. Provided however, the Court may, if it is of opinion that the accused has adduced reasons which are sufficient to show why he delayed to raise the defence of alibi within the period set out above, permit the accused at any time thereafter but prior to the conclusion of the case for the prosecution, to raise the defence of alibi. I believe that this statement was voluntarily made.
It was taken in my presence and hearing and was read over by me to the person making it and admitted by him to be correct, and it contains accurately the whole of the statement made by him. Every offence shall ordinarily be inquired into and tried by a court within the local limits of whose jurisdiction it was committed. When a person is accused of the commission of any offence by reason of anything which has been done and of any consequence which has ensued, such offence may be inquired into or tried by any court within the local limits of the jurisdiction of which any such thing has been done or any such consequence has ensued.
When an act is an offence by reason of the relation to any other act which is also an offence or which would be an offence if the doer were capable of committing an offence, a charge of the first-mentioned offence may be inquired into or tried by a court within the local limits of the jurisdiction of which either act was done—. The offence of criminal misappropriation or of criminal breach of trust may be inquired into or tried either by the court within the local limits of whose jurisdiction any part of the property which is the subject of the offence was received by the accused person or by the court within the local limits of whose jurisdiction the offence was committed.
The offence of stealing anything may be inquired into or tried by any court within the local limits of whose jurisdiction such thing was stolen or was possessed by the thief or by any person who receives or retains the same knowing or having reason to believe it to be stolen. An offence committed whilst the offender is in the course of performing a journey or voyage may be inquired into or tried by a court through or into the local limits of whose jurisdiction the offender or the person against whom or the thing in respect of which the offence was committed passed in the course of that Journey or voyage.
All offences against the provisions of any law for the time being in force relating to railways, telecommunications, the post office, or arms and ammunition may be inquired into or tried by any court, whether the offence is stated to have been committed within the local limits of the jurisdiction of such court or not, provided that the offender is found within such local jurisdiction.
Provided that such a complaint if in writing shall be drawn and countersigned by a pleader and signed by the complainant; or.
Title 18 of the United States Code
Provided that when proceedings are instituted under this paragraph the accused or when there are several persons accused any one of them, shall be entitled to require that the case shall not be tried by the Magistrate upon whose knowledge or suspicion the proceedings were instituted, but shall either be tried by another Magistrate or committed for trial; or. In cases where the offence complained of is one of rape, carnal intercourse with a young girl, unnatural offence, or hurt of a serious nature or hurt whether serious or not alleged to have been caused by an instrument for stabbing or cutting, the Magistrate shall cause the person who is alleged to have been the subject of such rape, carnal intercourse, unnatural offence, or hurt, and the person accused of such rape, carnal intercourse or unnatural offence to be forthwith examined by a Government medical officer if he has not already been so examined.
Such examination may if the Magistrate thinks fit be held in private. Provided that such examination shall not be necessary where the Magistrate has before him a report of the facts of the case or a complaint in writing has been filed. Every summons or warrant issued under section shall contain a statement of the particulars of the offence charged and in the case of a summons shall require the accused to appear at a time and place therein specified to answer the charge therein set forth. Every examination held by the Magistrate under section shall be recorded in the manner provided in section 2.
If in a proceeding instituted under section the case appears to be one of culpable homicide the Magistrate shall, unless for reasons to be recorded by him he thinks it inexpedient, go to the spot where such offence appears to have been committed and if the accused be present before him shall proceed to hold such part of the inquiry directed by Chapter XV as may be necessary, and if the accused be not present shall hold an examination of such persons as may seem to him to be able to give material evidence.
Whenever a Magistrate issues a summons he may in his discretion dispense with the personal attendance of the accused and permit him to appear by a pleader:. Provided always that the Magistrate may in his discretion at any stage of the proceedings direct the personal attendance of the accused and enforce his attendance in manner hereinbefore provided.
A Magistrate conducting a preliminary inquiry shall at the commencement of such inquiry read over to the accused the charge or charges in respect of which the inquiry is being held, but upon such reading over the accused shall not be required to make any reply thereto; if any such reply is made, it shall not be recorded by the Magistrate; nor shall any such reply be admissible in evidence against the accused. The officer in charge of the police station where the relevant Information Book is kept shall at the commencement of the inquiry furnish to the Magistrate three certified copies of the notes of investigation and of all statements recorded in the course of the investigation.
Provided that the accused shall not be convicted of any offence other than that with which he has been charged unless such other offence is one of which he may be lawfully convicted under the provisions of this Code upon the trial of the offence with which he is charged. Provided that nothing contained in this section shall prevent the Magistrate from either forthwith or after such adjournment of the inquiry as may seem expedient in the interests of justice, proceeding to investigate any other charge upon which the accused may have been summoned or otherwise brought before him, or which, in the course of the charge so dismissed as aforesaid, it may appear that the accused has committed.
Provided however, the fact that such a statement had been made shall in no way prevent the accused from proceeding to trial in the High Court:. Provided further the fact that such a statement had been made shall in no way prejudice the accused at the trial. Provided, however, that the Magistrate may exclude from such list the name of any witness if he is of opinion that the evidence of such witness is not material.
Provided that if service cannot be effected in such manner by the exercise of due diligence, the notice shall be affixed to some conspicuous part of the house or homestead in which the witness ordinarily resides, and in such case the notice shall be deemed to have been duly served. It shall not be necessary to specify the sessions of the High Court in the bond, but the obligor shall be bound on receiving reasonable notice to attend at the trial in whatever sessions of the High Court the accused may be tried.
The Magistrate shall if the accused is committed for trial record whether the accused is on bail or in custody and certify under his hand the record of the inquiry. Provided that until a rate is so prescribed the rate shall be twenty-five cents for a hundred words. Subject to the provisions of this code or any other law, all prosecutions on indictment instituted in the High Court shall be tried by a Judge of that Court:.
Provided that in any case where at least one of the offences falls within the list of offences set out in the Second Schedule to the judicature Act, No 2 of , trial shall be by a jury, before a Judge, if and only if, the accused elects to be tried by a jury. But anything in this subsection shall not be deemed or construed to debar the prosecution after notice to the accused, from calling any witness or producing any document or thing not specified in the indictment.
Every inquiry held under this Chapter shall be concluded within one month of the commencement of the proceedings unless the Magistrate, for reasons to be recorded by him, finds it necessary to prolong the inquiry beyond the period of one month. This is equivalent to a statement that the case was not provided for by section of the Penal Code and that the general exception did not apply to it. The charge may state that A committed murder or cheating or theft or extortion or criminal intimidation, or than he used a false property-mark without reference to the definitions of those crimes contained in the Penal Code.
The charge should be in these words. Provided that the time included between the first and last of such dates shall not exceed one year. When the nature of the case is such that the particulars mentioned in section and the preceding subsections of this section do not give the accused sufficient notice of the matter with which he is charged, the charge shall also contain such particulars of the manner in which the alleged offence was committed as will be sufficient for that purpose. The charge need not set out the manner in which the theft was effected. The charge must set out the manner in which A cheated B.
The charge must set out that portion of the evidence given by A which is alleged to be false. The charge must set out the manner in which A obstructed B in the discharge of his functions. The charge need not state the manner in which A murdered B. The charge must set out the disobedience charged and the law infringed. In every charge words used in describing an offence shall be deemed to have been used in the sense attached to them respectively by the law under which such offence is punishable. Any error in stating either the offence or the particulars required to be stated in the charge and any omission to state the offence or those particulars shall not be regarded at any stage of the case as material, unless the accused was misled by such error or omission.
Unless it appears that A was in fact misled by this omission the error shall not be regarded as material. A defends himself, calls witnesses, and gives his own account of the transaction. The court may infer from this that the omission to set out the manner of the cheating is not material.
There were many transactions between A and B, and A had no means of knowing to which of them the charge referred and offered no defence. The court may infer from such facts that the omission to set out the manner of the cheating was in this case material. If the alteration made under section is such that proceeding immediately with tries trial is not likely in the opinion of the court to prejudice the accused in his defence or the prosecutor in the conduct of the case, the court may in its discretion after such alteration has been made, proceed with the trial as if the altered indictment or charge had been the original indictment or charge.
If the alteration made under section is such that proceeding immediately with the trial is likely in the opinion of the court to prejudice the accused or the prosecutor as aforesaid, the court may either direct a new trial or adjourn the trial for such period as may be necessary. If the indictment or charge as altered under section alleges an offence for the prosecution of which previous sanction is necessary, the case shall not be proceeded with until such sanction is obtained, unless sanction has been already obtained for a prosecution on the same facts as those on which the altered indictment or charge is founded.
Whenever an indictment or charge is altered by the court after the commencement of the trial the prosecutor and the accused shall be allowed to recall or re-summon and examine with reference to such alteration any witnesses who may have been examined. A is convicted of an offence under section of the Penal Code upon a charge which omits to state that he knew the evidence which he corruptly used or attempted to use as true or genuine was false or fabricated.
If the court thinks it probable that A had such knowledge and that he was misled in his defence by the omission from the charge of the statement that he had it, it shall direct a new trial upon an amended charge; but if it appears probable from the proceedings that A had no such knowledge it shall quash the conviction. For every distinct offence of which any person is accused there shall be a separate charge and every such charge shall be tried separately except in the cases mentioned in sections , , and which said sections may be applied either severally or in combination.
A is accused of a theft on one occasion and of causing grievous hurt on another occasion. A must be separately charged and separately tried for the theft and the causing grievous hurt. If the acts alleged constitute an offence falling within two or more separate definitions of any law in force for the time being by which offences are defined or punished the person accused of them may be charged with and tried at one trial for each of such offences, and in trials before the High Court such charges may be included in one and the same indictment.
If several acts, of which one or more than one would by itself or themselves constitute an offence, constitute when combined a different offence the person accused of them may be charged with and tried at one trial for the offence constituted by such acts when combined and for any offence constituted by any one or more of such acts and in trials before the High Court such charges may be included in one and the same indictment.
A may be separately charged with and convicted of the possession of each seal under section of the Penal Code. A may be separately charged with and convicted of two offences under section of the Penal Code. Pursuit of offenders into other jurisdictions. Arrest by private persons and procedure on such arrest.
