(3) Without prejudice to Article 47(5) of the Magistrates' Courts (Northern Ireland) Order 1981, where in any proceedings a magistrates' court remands an accused in custody the court may where it thinks it desirable in the interests of justice, either at the time of the remand or at any time before the end of the period of remand, direct that at the end of the period of remand the accused shall be brought personally before a magistrates' court.

(4) Where by virtue of paragraph (1) an accused is not brought personally before a magistrates' court in any proceedings, those proceedings shall have effect in law, and as far as practicable be conducted, as if he were present; and in particular (but without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing) the court may further remand the accused in custody.
