Chapter VII - Penal provisions (Section 139 to 147)

Section 141


141. Every person who attempts to commit an offence contemplated in sections 139 and 140*, or aids or incites another person to commit an offence against this act or a regulation, is guilty of an offence and liable to the penalties provided for such offence.


An attempt is the fact of taking action with the intent of committing an offence without the result sought being achieved, for reasons beyond the control of the author.

A person who aids or incites another to commit an offence is an accomplice to the author and is liable to the same penalties as the latter.
