The Agency is of the opinion that in the present circumstances it should suspend immediately the said licence and provide the Licensee with a period of thirty (30) days to show cause why the said licence should not be cancelled.
Accordingly, the Agency, pursuant to paragraph 75(1)(b) of the CTA, hereby suspends Licence No. 967703.
