Serbian Anti-Graft Watchdog Says Telekom Shouldn’t Be Sold

Serbian anti-graft authorities urged the government not to sell Telekom Srbija, criticizing the company’s operations as “not transparent” and saying it has been under “intense political pressure for years.”

The government may not be able to sell publicly owned resources that the country’s largest phone operator may be using, including the telecommunications network, the anti-Corruption Council said on Tuesday, according to news service Tanjug. The appeal came a day after the cabinet allowed all eight non-binding bidders to continue in the sale of the largest on a list of state-owned assets that the government has slated for auction.
