Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

6Pending appeals to Her Majesty in Council

(1)This section applies to appeals to Her Majesty in Council from any court having jurisdiction for Seychelles in relation to which before the appointed day leave to appeal has been granted by that court or special leave to appeal has been granted by Her Majesty in Council.

(2)In respect of appeals to which this section applies, or in respect of any class of such appeals, Her Majesty may by Order in Council (to be laid before Parliament after being made) confer on the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council such jurisdiction as appears to Her Majesty to be appropriate in the circumstances for the purposes of enabling them to be continued before and disposed of by that Committee.

(3)An Order in Council under this section may, if Her Majesty thinks fit, direct that any appeal continued before the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council in pursuance of the Order shall abate on a date specified in the Order unless it has been heard by the Committee before that date; and an Order containing such a direction may contain provisions to facilitate the hearing of any such appeal before that date, including provisions as to the sittings of the Committee and provisions for expediting the steps to be taken by the parties preliminary to the hearing of an appeal.

(4)An Order in Council under this section may determine the practice and procedure to be followed on any appeal continued before the said Committee in pursuance of the Order, and, in particular, may include provisions as to the form of any report or recommendation to be made by that Committee in the exercise of the jurisdiction conferred on that Committee by the Order, as to the authority to whom any such report or recommendation is to be transmitted and as to the manner in which it is to be transmitted to that authority.

(5)Except so far as otherwise provided by an Order in Council under this section, and subject to such modifications as may be so provided, the Judicial Committee Act 1833 shall apply in relation to appeals continued before the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council under this section as it applied in relation to those appeals before the appointed day.
