TSTT wants to challenge USF ruling at Privy Council

30 Sep 2022

Telecommunication Services of Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT), and its fibre ISP unit AMPLIA Communications, are seeking permission to challenge an Appeal Court ruling at the Privy Council. According to NewsDay, the companies have filed an application for conditional leave to challenge the ruling of the local court in a lawsuit brought by the Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (TATT) in March 2021.

That month the watchdog filed a claim against TSTT and AMPLIA seeking to recover TTD26.467 million (USD3.816 million) in unpaid contributions to the Universal Service Fund (USF). The hearing – which has already been upheld and then reversed – was due before the Appeal Court on Monday 26 September, but has now been adjourned to 8 November.

TeleGeography notes that the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council (JCPC) is the court of final appeal for the UK overseas territories and Crown dependencies.
