119 Power of District Court to impose additional penalty in certain cases


On the conviction of any person of an offence against section 95(1)(a) or (b), the District Court in which the conviction is entered may, in addition to any penalty that may be imposed under section 118 for the offence, order that any money received by that person as commission or profit for any services or work performed as an unregistered motor vehicle trader be forfeited to the Crown.


All money forfeited to the Crown is recoverable by the Crown in any court of competent jurisdiction, or may be assessed by the District Court in which the defendant is convicted and be recoverable in like manner as a fine.
