16. Enforcement of conditions of licence



1) If the Minister has reason to believe-
a) that a licensee is likely to contravene a condition in the licence granted under section 13 or 13A;
b) that a licensee has contravened such a condition and there is a reasonable likelihood that the contravention will continue or be repeated; or
c) that a licensee has contravened such a condition and that the contravention can be remedied,

the Minister may, after consultation with the board

(i) notify such licensee of such contravention;
(ii) instruct such licensee to remedy the contravention within a period stipulated in such a notice; or
(iii) apply to a High Court for an order prohibiting the contravention or, as the case may be, requiring the licensee and any other person who appears to the court to have been party to the contravention, to take such steps as the court may direct.

[Subsection (1) amended by section 16 of Act No. 32 of 2013]


2) The liability of the licensee to pay any sum in terms of this Act or the licence or agreement pertaining thereto shall not be affected by the licence ceasing to be valid for any reason and such sum may not be set off by the licensee against any amount due and payable.
