Telecommunications Services of T&T (TSTT) executive vice president of mobile services and vice president of legal Lisa Agard says the telecommunications company will not comment on the recent revelation that it was ordered by the previous Government to assist in wiretapping.
She was speaking to reporters yesterday after the launch of bmobile's "B smart. It's your call. B hands-free" campaign at the Courtyard Marriott, Invaders Bay. Agard said TSTT would not make any comment on its alleged utilisation in wiretapping while the investigations are ongoing.
Meanwhile, Digicel in a statement yesterday, said it "never monitored its customers' accounts or is aware of any details emerging from the surveillance of such by the Security Intelligence Agency (SIA)." Digicel further stated that the equipment used for national surveillance was purchased and was therefore owned and operated by the Ministry of National Security.
"Digicel has had no control or insight into who has been monitoring. Digicel was also assured that the equipment would be used solely for investigating issues of national security and our compliance was therefore in keeping with our licence to operate," it added.
