Regulator rejects prosecutor's case in mobile tender

THE TELECOM Bureau (TÚ) market regulator has rejected a claim by the Bratislava Regional Prosecutor’s Office that the 2006 tender for a third mobile operator in Slovakia was not carried out legally.

TÚ Chairman Branislav Máčaj now has 30 days to render a final decision on the issue, although if the prosecutor still disagrees the dispute can wind up in court.

Two the unsuccessful bidders contested the tender after it was won by the Spanish Telefonica O2. The B Four consortium (comprising the Czech Radiokomunikace and the Slovak private equity firm Penta) and a consortium comprising the Austrian company Mobilkom Austria and the Slovak company Eco-Invest filed petitions with the Attorney General’s Office to investigate the methods and outcome of the tender.
