The Department of Transport has suspended the licence of a Darwin taxi driver pending an investigation into allegations he made death threats against a public servant.
The driver will also be issued with a ‘show-cause’ notice asking him to explain why his Commercial Passenger Vehicle licence shouldn’t be permanently cancelled.
“I take the safety of all Government staff extremely seriously and will not tolerate abuse of public servants.” Chief Minister Adam Giles said.
The situation has shaken the staff member and his family.
They are receiving support from the Department of Transport.
The incident has been reported to NT Police who are currently investigating.
