Explanatory Memorandum to Fur Farming (Prohibition) (Northern Ireland) Order 2002

Article 4: Forfeiture orders

This article gives the court power to make an order for the forfeiture and destruction or other disposal of the animals in the event that a person is convicted of either the primary or the secondary offence under Article 3. In both cases the forfeiture order relates to any animals of a particular description specified in the order which, at any time the order is made or at any time thereafter until the order is carried out, are kept on the premises by the person convicted (in the case of the primary offence) or (in the case of the secondary offence) by the person who has caused or permitted to keep the animals in question.

Paragraph (5) permits a person claiming to have an interest in the animals to apply to the court for the purpose of resisting the making of a forfeiture order.
