[balkans.com] Minister for Telecommunications and Information Society Jasna Matic asked the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) to help protect fundamental human rights of Serbs in Kosovo-Metohija and enable urgent reconstruction of dismantled towers of Belgrade-based mobile phone operators.
Addressing ITU Secretary General Hamadoun Touré regarding the illegal dismantling and removal of mobile phone relay towers in the province, owned by Telekom Srbija and Telenor, Matic asked that the ITU, in line with Resolution 1244, reacts and endorses the Serbian government and the mobile phone operators.
The Ministry says in a statement that it is unacceptable that Serbian citizens and institutions in Kosovo-Metohija should be deprived of telephone communication and left without any possibility for children, the sick and the elderly to contact emergency services in order to ask for and receive medical treatment.
