has had his name removed from the Register of Pharmacists; or
has contravened any condition or restriction imposed by the Council under section 18;
if he has obtained his registration by a fraudulent or an incorrect statement or through an error;
if he has had his registration as a pharmacist in any other country withdrawn, suspended or cancelled by the authority which registered him; or
if he has had his degree or qualification which entitled him to be registered under this Act withdrawn, suspended or cancelled by the authority through which it was acquired or by which it was awarded.
