Court Denied Caricel’s Request to Bar the Gov from Revoking Licence

Kingston, Jamaica (McN) — Supreme Court on January 24, ruled against the application from Symbiote Investments Limited (Caricel), seeking to bar the Government from revoking the domestic mobile spectrum licence that was issued to the company last year.

Final submission of the case was brought before Judge Leighton Pusey on January 6.

Caricel was granted the Domestic Mobile Spectrum license by the previous Government after cabinet voted and approve it – despite warning from the Contractor General Dirk Harrison who, issued a report to Parliament, demonstrating that it was not advisable that the Gorvernment issue the Mobile license to Symbiote Investment Limited, citing that intelligence in investigation of the company found “adverse traces”  – breach of the Telecommunications Act, and the Radio and Telegraph Control Act.

Caricel filed the application to bar the Government from revoking the $2 billion spectrum licence, after Prime Minster Andrew Holness – Issued an Executive order to revoke the license – on reports  of breach by the telecom company from Contractor General and pressure from the United States, who have since revoked the visas of key Directors of the company.
