Ooredoo Kuwait wins appeal against USD125m fine

6 Jan 2015

Ooredoo Kuwait has won a court appeal against a previous court judgement in favour of the Ministry of Communications (MoC), Reuters reports. According to Ooredoo’s 2013 annual report, the ministry claimed Ooredoo Kuwait had been unlawfully using government network infrastructure since 1999 and launched legal proceedings (Case No. 2948/2012) against the operator. On 18 February 2014, Kuwait’s Court of Appeal ordered Ooredoo Kuwait to pay KWD36.69 million (USD124.97 million) to the MoC. However, a new court ruling issued on 5 January 2015 dismissed the case and cancelled the February 2014 judgement.
