(b)he is unlawfully at large, and

(c)the period of two years (starting with the day the court believes he first became unlawfully at large) has ended.

(2)If this section applies the court may, on an application by the prosecutor and if it believes it is appropriate for it to do so, proceed under section 92 in the same way as it must proceed if the conditions there mentioned are satisfied; but this is subject to subsection (3).

(3)If the court proceeds under section 92 as applied by this section, this Part has effect with these modifications—

(a)any person the court believes is likely to be affected by an order under section 92 is entitled to appear before the court and make representations;

(b)the court must not make an order under section 92 unless the prosecutor has taken reasonable steps to contact the accused;

(c)section 92(12) applies as if the reference to subsection (2) were to subsection (1) of this section;

(d)sections 96, 101(3), 102, 103, 104 and 105 do not apply;

(e)section 106 does not apply while the accused is still unlawfully at large.

(4)Once the accused has ceased to be unlawfully at large, section 106 has effect as if references to the date of conviction were to—

(a)the day when proceedings for the offence were instituted against the accused, or

(b)if there are two or more offences and proceedings for them were instituted on different days, the earliest of those days.

(5)If—

(a)the court makes an order under section 92 as applied by this section, and

(b)the accused is later convicted of the offence (or any of the offences) concerned,

section 92 does not apply so far as that conviction is concerned.
