A director, executive officer, mandatary or representative of a legal person referred to in the first paragraph who knowingly authorizes, encourages, recommends, or allows the commission of the offence is liable to a fine of not less than $1,500 nor more than $20,000.
In determining the amount of a fine, the court considers such factors as the injury suffered as a result of and the benefits derived from the offence. The minimum and maximum fines are doubled for a second or subsequent offence.
