(1) Notwithstanding any other law or rule of law, where any person (in this section referred to as }the agent~) acting, otherwise than as an employee, for or on behalf of another person (in this section referred to as }the principal~) commits an offence against this Act the principal is guilty of an offence against this Act in like manner as the agent and may be proceeded against and convicted accordingly unless he proves that he had no knowledge of the commission of the offence and that he took all reasonable precautions and used all due diligence to avoid the commission of the offence.
(2) The principal may be proceeded against and convicted pursuant to subsection (1) notwithstanding that the agent has not been proceeded against or has not been convicted under this Act.
(3) Nothing in subsection (1) prejudices or affects any liability imposed by or under this Act on any person by whom an offence against this Act is actually committed.
