PAW/CORTEC WERE ALREADY OPERATING ON AN EXPLORATION LICENCE AND THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO SUGGEST THAT THIS LICENCE WAS CANCELLED IN ANY WAY . THEIR APPLICATION FOR A SPECIAL MINING LICENCE IS THE ISSUE . A NUMBER OF SPECIAL MINING LICENCES WERE ALL SUSPENDED  AT THE SAME TIME AS THEY WERE ISSUED AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT'S ORDERS NOT TO ISSUE ANY LICENCES DURING THE GOVERNMENT TRANSITION PERIOD . THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO SHOW THAT PAW/CORTEC HAD THEIR SPECIAL MINING LICENCE CANCELLED . IT HAS BEEN SUSPENDED PENDING A REVIEW . THE GOVERNMENT IS REQUIRED TO GAZETTE SUCH CANCELLATIONS AND THERE IS NO INDICATION , TO DATE , OF THIS HAVING BEEN DONE . A NUMBER OF OTHER LICENCES WERE ALSO SUSPENDED AND APPEAR TO BE UNDER REVIEW . THESE LICENCE HOLDERS HAVE REMAINED QUIET . PAW/CORTEC SHOULD HAVE REMAINED QUIET BUT THEY RUSHED TO COURT TO FILE CORRUPTION CHARGES . CORTEC KENYA APPEARS TO HAVE CREATED THIS ISSUE ALL ON ITS OWN .. THIS  IS THE WAY THAT AMOS JUMA  , AS A KENYAN CORTEC DIRECTOR , DOES BUSINESS . IT REFLECTS VERY BADLY ON PAW AND THEIR SHARE LISTING .
