160.3. Penal proceedings for an offence other than an offence under section 158 are prescribed one year after the date of opening of the investigation record relating to the offence. However, no proceedings may be instituted if more than five years have elapsed from the date of commission of such an offence.
A certificate of the enterprise registrar or of the secretary of the Association, as the case may be, indicating the date of the beginning of the investigation is, failing any evidence to the contrary, conclusive proof of such date.
