The Ministry of Labour, Human Services and Social Security has published a list of 212 co-operative societies which it says faces cancellation effective May 18, 2014 because of non-compliance with two key acts.

The latter relates to sanctions by supervisory authorities under the Act.

The notice said that the cancellation will be effective from May 18, 2014 and subject to any successful appeal to the Minister of Labour. The notice added that with effect from the date of cancellation no one would be authorized to transact any business on behalf of the societies unless ordered to do so by the Chief Co-operative Development Officer via public notice.
