Using your knowledge of statutory interpretation consider whether any of the following ‘sells or hires or offers for sale or hire or gives to any other person – any knife which has a blade which opens automatically by hand pressure applied to a button, spring or other device in or attached to the handle of the knife’ and therefore commits an offence under s1(1) of the Restriction of Offensive Weapons Act 1959:
(i) Jane, a youth worker, confiscates a flick knife from a member of her
youth club and gives it to her supervisor.
(ii) Tony, an antique dealer, displays an old military knife with a spring
opening device in his shop window with a price ticket attached to it.
(iii) Fola buys an unopened box of kitchen utensils from a car boot sale. Without examining the contents closely she donates the box to a charity shop.
The box is found to contain a flick knife.
