OF THE JURISDICTION OF THE CRIMINAL COURTS IN INQUIRIES AND TRIALS
A.—Place of Inquiry or Trial
Political Agents to certify fitness of inquiry into charge
Provided that notwithstanding anything in any of the preceding sections of this Chapter no charge as to any such offence shall be inquired into in Bangladesh 1[except with the sanction of the Government]:
Provided, also, that any proceedings taken against any person under this section which would be a bar to subsequent proceedings against such person for the same offence if such offence had been committed in Bangladesh shall be a bar to further proceedings against him under 2[the Extradition Act, 1974], in respect of the same offence in any territory beyond the limits of Bangladesh.
The words "except with the sanction of the Government" were substituted, for the words and commas "unless the Political Agent, if there is one, for the territory in which the offence is alleged to have been committed, certifies that, in his opinion, the charge ought to be inquired into in Pakistan; and, where there is no Political Agent, the sanction of the Provincial Government shall be required" by section 3 and 2nd Schedule of the Bangladesh Laws (Revision And Declaration) Act, 1973 (Act No. VIII of 1973)
