Fraud Act 2006

Nuclear Material (Offences) Act 1983

Paragraph 20 amends section 1, which provides that if a person commits a wide range of offences (including “fraud”) “in relation to or by means of” nuclear material, he may be tried in the UK irrespective of where he did the acts. The amendment simply deletes the reference to section 15 of the 1968 Act and section 15 of the Theft Act (Northern Ireland) 1969, which are repealed by the Act. As “fraud” is already mentioned in section 1 in a general way, the 1983 Act provision will bite on the offence in section 1 of the Act without the need for a specific mention of the Act.
