[549] *English translation of paragraph LXXVI of the Banish penal code of February 10, 1866.

Those who, without the authority of the King, attempt to recruit men for service in a foreign army, will be punished with forced labor for six years, if the kingdom is engaged in a war; and if such is not the case, with a pénalty ranging from two months’ solitary confinement to two years of forced labor.

The subject who without the permission of the King, engages in times of war in the service of a foreign power not at war with Denmark, is liable to imprisonment, or, according to the nature of the case, to forced labor, for one year.

The act of recruiting is considered accomplished from the moment when an individual is accepted for the foreign service.
