ICH Case Against Telenor Transferred to Islamabad High Court


A petition filed before Sindh High Court, challenging the exit of Telenor from ICH has been transferred to Islamabad High Court due to territorial jurisdiction objection raised by Telenor Pakistan.

Sindh High Court while accepting the objection raised by Telenor transferred the petition to Islamabad High Court with request for earliest hearing of the case.

Along with, Sindh High Court also upheld the stay order on ICH granted earlier by the Court on January 27th, 2014. As per this stay order no operator can exit ICH agreement.

Telenor is still terminating the international incoming traffic in Pakistan and believes that it had exited ICH before the stay order was granted (i,e. on January 25th, 2014), while the petitioner maintains that Telenor has been defying the stay order issued by the court order and is committing contempt of Court.

After Sindh High Court’s recent decision, Telenor will continue to face contempt of Court case before Islamabad High Court for defying the Court Order.
