UEFA European Championship (Scotland) Act 2020


Section 23: Power to obtain information

56.This section allows an enforcement officer to require any person to provide such information as the officer considers appropriate in connection with a Championship offence or conduct which the officer reasonably suspects constitutes a Championship offence. This could be used to gain access to records or receipts. The exception to this requirement is that persons may refuse to provide information if they would be able to refuse to provide that information in or for the purpose of court proceedings. An individual would, for example, not be required to self-incriminate.
