18. A statement of offence intended for the judicial authority and originally drawn up in paper form may be digitized. The front and the back of the form as well as the particulars contained in that statement of offence may be digitized either simultaneously or separately. In the latter case, the front of the digitized statement of offence is displayed on superimposed page screens and the back may be electronically attached or referenced to it.
Where the front of the statement of offence is digitized separately, the statement of offence may be converted into hard copy on a page that is intended to bear the reconstitution of the front of the statement and whose back may be pre-printed or pre-programmed. Where the particulars contained on the front of the statement of offence are digitized separately, the statement may likewise be converted into hard copy on a pre-printed or pre-programmed form.
