Revocation of Certificates
27.—(1) The Police Officer may revoke a firearm or shot gun certificate if —
(a) he or she is satisfied that the holder is prohibited by these Regulations from possessing any firearm or shot gun, or is of intemperate habits or of unsound mind, or is otherwise not fit to be entrusted with such a firearm or shot gun; or
(b) the holder fails to comply with a notice issued under regulation 26(1) requiring him or her to deliver up the certificate;
(c) in the case of firearm certificates the revocation must be endorsed by the Governor's Representative within seven days of the date of revocation and the holder appraised of the result.
(2) Any person aggrieved by the revocation of a certificate under sub-regulation (1) may appeal to a Senior Magistrate and the provisions of regulation 23(6) shall apply to such appeal.
(3) Where a certificate is revoked under sub-regulation (1), the Police Officer shall, by notice in writing, require the holder to surrender the certificate within 7 days. Failure to do so shall be an offence:
Provided that if an appeal is made pursuant to sub-regulation (2), this sub-regulation shall not apply to that revocation, unless the appeal is withdrawn or dismissed, and shall then apply with the substitution for the reference to the date of the notice, of a reference to the date on which the appeal was withdrawn or dismissed.
