Fraud Act 2006

Visiting Forces Act 1952

Paragraph 2 amends the Schedule to the 1952 Act which defines “offence against property” for the purposes of section 3 of that Act, which restricts the trial by UK courts of offenders connected with visiting forces. It inserts a reference to the Fraud Act 2006, so that all the offences in this Act will be regarded as offences against property, meaning they cannot in most circumstances be charged against visiting forces.
