  TEE: TeliaSonera: TeliaSonera: The Chairman of the Board Comments on the
  Minister for Financial Markets Peter Norman's Statement

UK Regulatory Announcement


In relation to the Minister for Financial Markets Peter Norman's statement
today, in which he suggests that it may be reasonable for TeliaSonera's Board
to work towards a time out for senior executives subject to suspected offense
in order to avoid further deterioration of confidence in the company,
TeliaSonera’s Chairman Anders Narvinger makes the following comment.

"The Board of Directors of TeliaSonera has been aware of the fact that a
member of Group Management has been served with indictment since the end of
September 2012, and is continuously following up on the question of suspicions
related to TeliaSonera’s investment in Uzbekistan. In light of the ongoing
investigations, the Board has not considered that any senior executive of
TeliaSonera should take a time-out," said Chairman of the Board Anders

"We are now awaiting Mannheimer Swartling’s investigation. In the event of new
information, which leads to a strengthening of the degree of suspicion against
senior executives, the Board will of course consider the need for a time-out
or other measures."
