Court laid down the principle that a key principle of Natural Justice is that a person cannot incur the loss of liberty or property or livelihood unless he has had an opportunity of a fair hearing.
Court held that the proceedings before me reveal that the 1st Respondent violated the rule requiring the Applicant to be heard before his lease offer could be cancelled. The objection to this application has been lukewarm and just fell short of admitting that the 1st Respondent acted without hearing the Applicant’s side. Consequently, the proceedings leading to the decision contained in Min. 1/2008 (1) (4) of June 13th 2008 are faulted and the decision revoking or cancelling the Applicant’s lease offer and subsequent directives to deregister his proprietorship were quashed.
