23. The Act also extends extra-territorial effect to UK residents who are not UK nationals, with the proviso that the act must constitute an offence under the law in force in the country in which the act took place. This requirement for dual criminality in such cases avoids creating a situation where, for example, a person habitually resident in Scotland, who holds Spanish citizenship could be prosecuted in Scotland for an act which occurred in Spain and was legal in Spain. Such situations may arise as a result of, for example, different jurisdictions having different ages of consent for sexual activity.
