Relevant notes from the explanatory memorandum

211. This section, based on the corresponding section of the Australian Constitution, grants a right to have a jury trial for indictable offences against the internal law, with offences constituted by commission of offences under the law of the place where committed taken to be tried by jury if the offender has already be found guilty.  The intention of this section is to prevent condemnations for indictable offences when the jurisdiction does not consist of the sufficient number of parties to give legitimacy to any sanction by way of a jury.
