MTC denies PM murder probe

30 Sep 2005

Executives at Kuwait cellco Mobile Telecommunication Company (MTC) have moved quickly to dismiss reports claiming that employees of its Lebanese business were involved in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Al-Hariri. Earlier this week local media reported that a number of staff had been detained following a raid on the office of MTC Touch Lebanon in connection with a UN investigation into the former PM’s death earlier this year. MTC has dismissed the reports, saying that UN officials visited the office to utilise the MTC Touch staff’s ‘technical expertise’ in regard to data linked to the investigation.
