iciHaiti - Riots : CONATEL does not appreciate the frustration of the DIGICEL CEO
"The telecom operators have suffered significant damage and not even a courtesy call from Conatel who never hesitates to convene us to get money [...] It is exactly to improve the service that we try to invest. The CONATEL [National Telecommunication Council] holds us hostage with huge tax requests and thus block this investment. In the meantime, the people are complaining and the country is suffering !" declared Maarten Boute, the CEO of Digicel.

Following this declaration, Maarten Boute has been convened on July 12th by CONATEL to explaine on statements qualified by the Council as "defamatory" against CONATEL and its Director General.

Reacting to this convocation Boute said "I will not answer their convocation on this subject and look forward to the resumption of negotiations for our license, which will allow us to invest heavily in the complete modernization of our network and endow the country with a national broadband network," adding "my reaction to CONATEL's total lack of support for the sector during and after this weekend's events was misplaced. It comes from the frustration to be one of the few foreign investors who still wants to invest in our country, blocked by their incompetence."
