Chapter XIX

OF THE CHARGE

Form of Charges

When trial may proceed immediately after alteration
228. If the charge framed or alteration or addition made under 1[* * *] section 227 is such that proceeding immediately with the 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 charge or alteration or addition has been framed or made proceed with the trial as if the new or altered charged had been the original charge.
