WHEREAS John le Carre was probably right when he said that once you start leading the "inside-out world of espionage, you never shed it". and

WHEREAS unlike our larger state counterparts we should never need to employ such illicit tactics, and

WHEREAS it makes me uncomfortable that government spies could be among us now, unbeknownst to the general public, unaccountable to the people, and sanctioned by one individual, and

WHEREAS Talossa is a country that should be built on trust and friendship, and

WHEREAS these particular tactics of espionage hark back to the days of King Robert I, and

WHEREAS it has never been known for us to implement such tactics in modern Talossa before, and we have still managed to effectively catch fraudsters, now

THEREFORE, be it enacted by the Ziu that Clause 2 of 36RZ10 The Anti-Imposter and Liar Act, which reads

Officials of the Kingdom of Talossa who create or use false identities as a means to investigate suspicious citizenship applications or other activities involving fraudulent or misleading identities or statements may, if prosecuted under this act, claim exemption from the provisions of this act by demonstrating that any subterfuge employed met all of the following criteria:
1. Was in response to a suspicious circumstance, as reasonably understood;
2. Was reasonably expected to be effective in uncovering fraud; and,
3. Was used only for a brief time and limited to discovering suspected fraud.
4. Can demonstrate that Prime Minister authorized the subterfuge and that the Minister of Defence and the Uppermost Cort were informed of the subterfuge.

is hereby repealed in full, and replaced with the following text:

Clause 2. Charges brought under this Act shall be heard in the Magistrate's Court, and require a majority verdict by the presiding Magistrates. The decision of the Magistrate's Court may be overturned by appeal to the Uppermost Court, and will require an unanimous decision by the presiding Justices.

FURTHERMORE, Clause 1 of 36RZ10 is to be amended to read as follows:

Clause 1. Except as provided in Clause 2, Whoever does any of the following is guilty of a crime subject to punishment by banishment, revocation of citizenship, any combination of civil disabilities and any other authorized punishments as described in 35RZ34:

FURTHERMORE, Clause 1.2 is to be amended to read as follows:
