6. If at any time the Government sees fit, by notification under 1[section 16 of the Customs Act, 1969], to prohibit or restrict the bringing by sea or by land into Bangladesh of any such pieces of metal as are mentioned in section 3, it may by the notification direct that any person contravening the prohibition or restriction shall be liable to the punishment to which he would be liable if he were convicted under this Act of making such pieces in Bangladesh instead of to the penalty mentioned in 2[section 156 of the Customs Act, 1969], and that the provisions of sub-section (3) of section 4 and sub-section (1) of section 5, or of either sub-section, in relation to the offence of making such pieces shall, notwithstanding anything in the 3[Customs Act, 1969], apply, so far as they can be made applicable, to the offence of contravening the prohibition or restriction notified under 4[section 16] of that Act.
