SIBU: A trader has filed a suit against the Sibu Municipal Council for revoking the licence for her drinks stall at the central market here.
Kumi Lamun alias Connie Lamun, 43, is claiming that she had not committed any offence which warranted cancellation of the licence.
Her lawyer Richard Wong Ho Leng said Lamun was asking the the court to quash the councils decision to cancel the licence, compel the council to reinstate her licence, which expires on Dec 31, and an interim order to allow her to continue trading pending the disposal of the case.
Wong claimed that Lamun, who is still operating the drinks stall, was issued a show-cause letter by the council on July 2 after it discovered that she was closed for business.
But Lamun claimed that she could not carry out trading as the stall had been locked up by her husband due to family problems.
