suspended, hung, withdrawn


Explanation:
I am afraid that to be more helpful, some context is needed.

"suspendu" is the past participle of the verb "suspendre" (suspend, hand) but can also mean withdraw in the sense of some right or entitlement being suspended or withdrawn.

Sorry not to be of greater assistance.
