National Communications Commission (NCC) Chairman Howard Shyr (石世豪) yesterday accused the Executive Yuan of meddling in the commission’s case involving Global Mobile (全球一動), adding that the “Executive Yuan has enough wisdom to fix the mistakes it made.”
The WiMAX service operator filed an appeal with the Executive Yuan after the commission nullified a July ruling allowing the telecom to upgrade its system on the grounds that it failed to fulfill three conditions the NCC issued.
However, the Executive Yuan’s appeals committee last week sided with Global Mobile, ruling to void the three conditions attached to the NCC ruling.
Shyr said that the committee’s decision showed that the Executive Yuan has interfered in the operations of the commission, which is an independent government agency.
He also accused Global Mobile of trying to influence the committee by meeting with its members. [FULL STORY]
