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 consisting of at least 3 members in a trial for an indictable offence against the internal law.  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.
