By Antigua News Room,
Digicel has issued a strongly worded press release in response to statements by Prime Minister Gaston Browne that he wants to buy out the company.
Digicel says that it has not received any approaches of any kind at any time from the Prime Minister or anyone in the Government of Antigua & Barbuda on the matter.
“For the avoidance of doubt, any assertions to the contrary are complete fiction and represent part of an ongoing campaign by the Government of Antigua & Barbuda to distract and disseminate false information,” the company said in a release.
It called the PM’s statement a distraction saying that the real issue is the illegal actions by the Government of Antigua & Barbuda in seeking to confiscate Digicel’s legally allocated spectrum for the benefit of the state-owned operator, APUA.
The company said, with the matter before the Courts, Digicel will fight vigorously to defend its customers and its business in the interest of fair and healthy competition in Antigua & Barbuda.
