Selling SIMs as active but without registration prohibited in the market

“Selling SIMs as active but without registration contradicting SIM registration procedure is prohibited”, stated Mr. Saed Hares Mir, ATRA Control and Monitoring Director, in a meeting held among ATRA, telecom companies and law enforcement bodies. He also added, “Where law enforcement bodies find such a case, they may treat the persons as other culprits and submit the culprit to the law”.

It was stressed in the meeting that telecom companies and all stakeholders should take in to account the obligations set within the SIM registration procedure for them and act upon.

It is worth mentioning that obligations and duties have been mentioned within the procedure for all parties, and ATRA always supervises the implementation thereof in cooperation with law enforcement bodies. In case any violation is found, the culprit is treated based on the law.
