This infraction was a violation of Wizarding law committed by Newt Scamander in December 1926, when he accidentally swapped his magical suitcase with that of No-Maj Jacob Kowalski. Newt was arrested by Porpentina Goldstein, who subsequently helped him to recapture the beasts along with Jacob and her sister Queenie.

The memories of the No-Majs that had seen the beasts were erased using venom of the Swooping Evil.[1]

Mr Scamander was, at least temporarily, banned from international travel for breaking the Statute.[2]
