Telecom Authority Grants Frequencies Without Procedure

The Telecommunications Authority enabled the company to get the monopoly by changing the signal frequencies to those that are to be sold to mobile phone operators, but it did so without a public selection process. The authority is denying that any law has been broken, though.
