Security Forces Board of Inquiry Act, 1993 (Act No. 95 of 1993)

16. Application of Act in self-governing territories



(1) If the Board has reason to suspect that a serious offence has been or is being committed by a member of a security force in a self-governing territory as defined in section 38(1) of the Self-governing Territories Constitution Act, 1971 (Act No. 21 of 1971), it may notify the Minister accordingly, and thereupon the State President may, at the request of the Minister and after consultation by the Minister with the government of the self-governing territory concerned, by proclamation in the Gazette declare this Act to be applicable in that self-governing territory and that the Minister and the Board and its staff shall be competent to perform their respective functions under this Act also in that self-governing territory.


(2) After such a proclamation has been issued, this Act shall, notwithstanding the Self-governing Territories Constitution Act, 1971, apply mutatis mutandis in the self-governing territory concerned until the inquiry into the offence suspected to have been committed and all criminal or civil proceedings arising from such inquiry have been disposed of.
