(4)The “appropriate court” means—

(a)where the application relates to an order made by the High Court, that court,

(b)where the application relates to an order made by the sheriff—

(i)in a case where the adult in respect of whom the order was made is, at the time of the application, resident in a sheriffdom other than the sheriffdom of the sheriff who made the order, any sheriff exercising criminal jurisdiction in the sheriffdom in which the adult is resident, or

(ii)in any other case, any sheriff exercising criminal jurisdiction in the sheriff court district of the sheriff who made the order.

(7)The court may—

(a)vary, renew or add a prohibition or requirement under subsection (2)(a) or renew an order under subsection (2)(b) only if it is satisfied that—

(i)there is a risk that the adult in respect of whom the order is to have effect may commit a relevant trafficking or exploitation offence, and

(ii)each prohibition or requirement in the order (as it is to have effect following the renewal, variation or addition) is necessary for the purpose of protecting persons generally, or particular persons, from the physical or psychological harm which would be likely to occur if the adult committed such an offence,

(b)discharge a prohibition or requirement under subsection (2)(a) or discharge an order under subsection (2)(c) only if it is satisfied that—

(i)there is no longer a risk that the adult in respect of whom the order was made may commit a relevant trafficking or exploitation offence, or

(ii)the prohibition or requirement or, as the case may be, the order is no longer necessary for the purpose of protecting persons generally, or particular persons, from the physical or psychological harm which would be likely to occur if the adult committed such an offence.

(8)Sections 20 and 21 apply to a trafficking and exploitation prevention order (and a prohibition or requirement in an order) as varied or renewed under this section as they apply to the making of a trafficking and exploitation prevention order.

(9)In this section “prosecutor” means Lord Advocate, Crown Counsel or procurator fiscal (and any person duly authorised to represent or act for them).
