HEAD OF CATEL: THERE ARE NO LEGAL GROUNDS FOR MCIT TO REFUSE TO GIVE LICENSE FOR CELLULAR COMMUNICATION TO CATEL
There are no any legal grounds for refusing to give license for performing the cellular communication services to Catel from the part of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technologies (MCIT), executive director of the Azerbaijani-American Joint Venture (JV) Catel (Caspian American Telecommunications, LLC) Sadig Gumbatov told Trend exclusively.
According to him, JV applied to the Ministry of Communications for getting the relevant license in March 2004 and have not received any definite negative response. В"Based on this, there are no any legal grounds for refusalвЂќ, Gumbatov thinks.
As long as the new system of licensing is determined, such issues will remain open, MCIT told Trend.
MCIT extended the license period for Catel to render wireless telephone communication services in Azerbaijan for the next 5 years. In the current February JV received a new index 418 for 10,000 numbers beside the operating indices 447/448.
В"We hope the state structure will approve officially licensing of Catel on rendering the cellular communication services in AzerbaijanвЂќ, Gumbatov underscored.
