Booth 'terminates' escort agency application

UPDATE 03:15pm Monday:

Karen Avery, of the Department of Business, says the application by the group including Cr Booth for an escort agency licence has now been withdrawn.

 

UPDATE 12:15pm Monday:

Cr Booth, who was expected to be attending tonight's council meeting by telephone hook-up, has this morning notified the council that he will not be attending in any form.

 

UPDATE 10:20am Monday:

Karen Avery, of the Department of Business, said this morning: "There has been some indication that the licence application may be withdrawn. However, the Department of Business or the NT Licensing Commission have not received any formal withdrawal yet."

 

Town Council CEO Rex Mooney (pictured) was told by Councillor Geoff Cr Booth that he had "terminated" his application for an escort agency operator's licence. But in a written report to tomorrow's council meeting Mr Mooney says:  "Cr Booth's withdrawal of this application does not in any real way satisfy or even deal with the concerns raised" by council solicitor Chris Turner, whom he instructed to provide legal advice following "media attention" focusing on Cr Booth's place of residence and escort agency plans.
