Indicted telephone companies pay 3.6 billion CFAF fines in Niger

Several telephone companies in Niger, indicted for offering services below expectation, have paid over 3.6 billion CFAF as fines to the country’s public treasury, the Chairman of the National multi-sectoral regulation council (CNR), Almoustapha Boubacar, told a news conference here Tuesday.

Boubacar said “After noticing some shortfalls, the CNR had to force them to pay the fines.”

The companies fined were Celtel-Niger (which paid 2,131,962,058 CFAF), Orange Niger (800,283,861 CFAF), Sonitel (392,727,645 CFAF), Atlantique Télécom (254,039,365 CFAF) and Sahel Com (74,076,928 FCFA).

According to Boubacar, the fines, however, represent 3% of the respective turnovers of each company indicted in accordance with the laws.
