Tripoli, 20 July 2014:
A dispute between phone card distributors and mobile phone operator Libyana has added to the present . . .[restrict]problems facing Libyans. There is now a shortage of Libyana phone cards in the shops and cigarette kiosks where they normally can be purchased.
“Distributors want more benefits from the company,” Libyana’s Samira Ghati told the Libya Herald.
“The company is currently looking at their demands,” she added.
The distributors, however, accuse Libyana of inadequately funding them.
“Libyana refuses to give us what we deserve. Not only do they pay us tiny commissions, they refuse to insure us against the risk of theft,” a distributor told this paper.
Meanwhile, Libyana has said that it has not, and will not, allow any SMS messages being sent which “inflame differences” in regard to the clashes in Tripoli. It has not said how it is policing the system. [/restrict]
