Regulation of Information (Services Outside the State For Termination of Pregnancies) Act, 1995


12.—(1) If a person is convicted of an offence under section 10 consisting of a contravention of section 3 or 4 , the court may order to be forfeited and either destroyed or otherwise disposed of in such manner as the court may determine anything in which Act information is published that is shown to the satisfaction of the court to have been employed in the commission of the offence.

(2) A court shall not order a thing to be forfeited under this section in a case where a person claiming to be the owner of it or otherwise interested in it applies to be heard by the court, unless an opportunity has been given to the person to show cause why the order should not be made.

(3) An order under this section shall not take effect until the ordinary time for instituting an appeal against the order or the conviction concerned has expired or, where such an appeal is instituted, until it or any further appeal is finally decided or abandoned or the ordinary time for instituting any further appeal has expired.
