147. The Minister shall, before cancelling or suspending any permit or refusing to renew a permanent permit, give the holder an opportunity to be heard. The latter must express in writing his intention to be heard within 15 days after the invitation of the Minister to that effect. That delay is mandatory and entails forfeiture.
The Minister shall give notice of his decision in writing, with the reasons on which it is based, to any person whose permit he cancels, suspends or refuses to renew.
