Common reasons for private detective licence appeals

• Failure to disclose a criminal or serious motoring conviction,
• Licensing Authority (Deparment Justis) will arguing you don’t meet the “proper person” criteria to hold a licence due to demonstrating other “bad conduct”.
• Customer complaints
• Dishonesty.
• Getting arrested or convicted of a criminal offence in the District Court or the Court which has led to the suspending of the licence.
• You may also find yourself facing a serious criminal charge before the Criminal Court. In such circumstances, attorney BAS VAN LEEUWEN’s private detective legal service focuses on defence of both a criminal charge and the private detective or company licence revocation.
