109A Tribunal may restrain further commissions of unlawful acts


If the Tribunal makes an order against a person under section 109 on the ground that the person has committed an unlawful act, the Tribunal may, if satisfied that it is in the public interest to do so, make an order restraining the person from committing a further act of the same kind.


The Tribunal may make an order under subsection (1) on its own initiative or on the application of the applicant who applied for the order, under section 109, against the person sought to be restrained.


The Tribunal must specify the term of the order, which may not exceed 6 years.


Every person commits an offence who, being subject to an order under this section, intentionally contravenes the order.


A person who commits an offence against subsection (4) is liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $3,600.
