Libya-based Lap Green reaffirms commitment to Sierra Leone despite controversy

Olusegun Abolaji Ogundeji | March 12, 2013
Lap Green Networks, the Libya-based African telecom group, insists that it is committed to launching mobile services through its affiliate Ambitel in Sierra Leone despite a growing controversy over allegations that it breached a contract in its deal to buy a majority stake in the company.

When asked whether Ambitel was going to merge with Intergroup, Weir said in e-mail," I will re-iterate the statement from our Chairman which is that, 'We are actively engaged in considering options in Sierra Leone including but not limited to potential partnerships with other industry participants.' At this stage it would be erroneous for me to make any other statement."

Contrary to reports that the telecom regulatory body, NATCOM, has slammed an ultimatum on Ambitel to roll out its service this month, Weir said that "the market launch will be soon but not this month."
