As part of our membership benefits, we provide legal opinions on many areas of concern for clarification and interpretation

Under the Crimes Decree 2009 (“the Act”), such conduct may constitute Criminal Trespass.

Accordingly, Section 387 (1) of the Act reads;

A person commits a summary offence if he or she-

(a) enters into or upon property in the possession of another with intent to commit an offence or to intimidate or annoy any person lawfully in possession of such property:

(b) having lawfully entered into or upon such property unlawfully remains there with intent to intimidate, insult or annoy any such person or with intent to commit any offence; or

(c) unlawfully persists in coming or remaining upon such property after being warned not to come thereon or to depart from the property.


Imprisonment for 3 months, but if the property upon which the offence is committed is any building, tent or vessel used as a human dwelling, or any building used as a place of worship, or as a place for the custody of property, the offender is liable to imprisonment for 1 year.
