The ambit of the discretion in ordering suspension and whetherthe discretion was properly exercised are matters which are reasonably arguable for the purpose of granting leave in accordance withthe test propounded by the Court of Final Appeal in Peter Po Fun Chan v. Winnie C W Cheung (FACV 10 of 2007).
