Article 5: Effect of Forfeiture orders

This article deals with the effect of a forfeiture order, and provides a right of appeal (to the court) which is available to any person claiming to have an interest in the animals which are subject of a forfeiture order. Although the forfeiture order could take effect immediately on being made, so as to deprive any person of his right in the animals kept at the date of the order, the destruction or other disposal of the animals pursuant to the forfeiture order may be deferred or other appropriate provision may be made depending the making and determination of an appeal or application relevant to the order.
