Publish date/time: 18/07/2011 [13:11]
Vodafone Fiji clarified that no military personnel in the history of the mobile phone company have ever been permitted to enter Vodafone’s exchange or monitor calls.
Vodafone Fiji’s Chairman, Lionel Yee said the company also does not have the technological capabilities to allow mobile phones to be tapped or intercepted.
Yee said there is no legislation in Fiji that permitted the interception or monitoring of calls by state agents unlike countries such as Australia and New Zealand which have an Interception Act.
He said mobile phone billing records are only released to the Director CID’s office on production of a court order such as a search warrant.
Meanwhile Yee also said it has become necessary to issue a statement in response to false published statements about their Managing Director, Aslam Khan and Vodafone Fiji.
Yee stated that Aslam Khan has never been detained in the United States.
He also said that Khan has never been frisked in the US by State Agents of the US at anytime, and neither Khan nor Vodafone is involved in financing terrorist activities or terrorism.
Lionel Yee stated that Khan has been at the helm of Vodafone Fiji for the last 17 years with an impeccable record and distinguished professional career.
He also said that Khan is a respected business executive and member of the community.
