Peerless Ltd v Gambling Regulatory Authority and others

Judicial review – Application for judicial review. The appellant bookmaker had been licensed by the Mauritian Gambling Regulatory Authority to take bets on football matches being played overseas. Its licence was suspended and then revoked. No reasons were given for the revocation. The appellant applied for leave to bring judicial review proceedings, but its application was dismissed by reason of its failure to make full and frank disclosure of facts by reason of misleading statements. The Privy Council allowed the appellant's appeal as the Supreme Court of Mauritius had failed to consider the merits of the application before dismissing it, and where there were sufficiently strong grounds that justified a grant of permission in respect of two of the appellant's assertions.
