(1) This part applies to all offences.
(2) This part extends the application of a territory law that creates an offence beyond the territorial limits of the ACT (and Australia) if the required geographical nexus exists for the offence.
(3) If a law that creates an offence provides for any geographical consideration for the offence, that provision prevails over any inconsistent provision of this part.
Examples for s (3)
1 A law creating an offence may provide that the place of commission of the offence is (explicitly or by necessary implication) an element of the offence.
2 A law creating an offence may provide for its application outside the ACT and exclude (explicitly or by necessary implication) the requirement for a geographical nexus between the ACT and an element of the offence.
