2.—(1) If any judge, magistrate or justice of the peace is satisfied by information on oath given by any constable or person authorised by the Governor to act for the purposes of this paragraph either generally or in a particular case:

(4) A constable lawfully on the premises or on the vehicle, ship or aircraft by virtue of a warrant issued under sub-paragraph (1) above may:

(a)search any person whom he has reasonable grounds to believe may be in the act of committing an offence referred to in this paragraph; and

(b)seize anything he finds in a search referred to in paragraph (a) above, if he has reasonable grounds for believing that it is evidence of an offence referred to in this paragraph.

Provided that no persons shall in pursuance of any warrant issued under this paragraph be searched except by a person of the same sex.

(5) Where, by virtue of this paragraph, a person is empowered to enter any premises, vehicle, ship or aircraft he may use such force as is reasonably necessary for that purpose.

(6) Any documents or articles of which possession is taken under this paragraph may be retained for a period of three months or, if within that period there are commenced any proceedings for such an offence as aforesaid to which they are relevant, until the conclusion of those proceedings.

Provided that a person who has obtained information or is in possession of a document only in his capacity as servant or agent of another person may not give consent for the purposes of this sub-paragraph but such consent may instead be given by any person who is entitled to that information or to the possession of that document in his own right; or

(b)to any person who would have been empowered under this Schedule to request that it be furnished or produced or any person holding or acting in any office under or in the service of the Crown in respect of the Government of the United Kingdom or under or in the service of the Government of any territory to which this Order extends; or

(c)on the authority of the Secretary of State, to any organ of the United Nations or to any person in the service of the United Nations or to the Government of any other country for the purpose of assisting the United Nations or that Government in securing compliance with or detecting evasion of measures in relation to Angola decided upon by the Security Council of the United Nations; or

(d)with a view to the institution of, or otherwise for the purposes of, any proceedings for an offence under this Order (whether in the Territory or any other territory to which this Order extends) or, with respect to any of the matters regulated by this Order, for an offence under any enactment relating to customs.

Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order, made under the United Nations Act 1946, applies to each of the territories specified in Schedule 2. It imposes restrictions pursuant to a decision of the Security Council of the United Nations in resolution 1173 of 12th June 1998 on the export to Angola and the supply to persons in Angola of equipment used in mining or mining services, and motorised vehicles or watercraft or their spare parts or ground or waterbourne transportation services; and on the import of diamonds from Angola. It restricts certain related activities including the carriage of those goods destined for and originating from, respectively, Angola in ships, aircraft and vehicles. It also places restrictions on certain actions making available or otherwise transferring funds and financial resources to or for the benefit of UNITA as an organisation or of senior officials or adult members of their immediate families. The order amends the Angola (United Nations Sanctions) (Dependent Territories) Order 1997 to correct certain references therein.
This Order does not affect the Angola (United Nations Sanctions) (Dependent Territories) Order 1993(4) nor the Angola (United Nations Sanctions) (Dependent Territories) Order 1997(5) other than as described above.
