PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (defend.ht) – Less than a week after its sequestration by the Haitian government, the mobile phone company HAITEL no longer works but no announcement was been made ​​to its customers.

The news was learned by the Haiti Press Network, which found that no calls can be made on the network for quite some days.

A government lawyer said the sequester did not involve a permanent cessation of services but only the continued management of the company by the State to ensure the preservation of rights and interests of all parties.

“For nearly a month bankruptcy was seen by the employees who have not received their salaries and some services were already suspended ” a source close to the company told HPN.

Recall that the company Digicel had just acquired the company Voila. With the closure of HAITEL, Digicel controls about 80% of the market and the Haitian government and Haitel, most of the rest.
