109. Notwithstanding any provisions of this article, the director may issue an emergency order for the suspension, limitation or conditioning of any operation certificate or any license, other than a casino license, or any registration, or any permit to conduct Internet gaming, or may issue an emergency order requiring the licensed casino to keep an individual from the premises of such licensed casino or from using or maintaining an Internet gaming account, or not to pay such individual any remuneration for services or any profits, income or accruals on his investment in such casino, in the following manner:

a. An emergency order shall be issued only when the director finds that:

(1) There has been charged a violation of any of the criminal laws of this State by a licensee or registrant, or

(2) Such action is necessary to prevent a violation of any such provision, or

(3) Such action is necessary immediately for the preservation of the public peace, health, safety, morals, good order and general welfare or to preserve the public policies declared by this act.

b. An emergency order shall set forth the grounds upon which it is issued, including the statement of facts constituting the alleged emergency necessitating such action.
