The Bangladesh Telecommuni-cations Regulatory Commission has filed a case against Grameenphone and ten of its present and former executives for unauthorised use of Voice over Internet Protocol in overseas calls, police said.

Assistant director of legal and licensing department of BTRC, Zian Shah Kabir, on January 16 filed the case with the Gulshan police station.

Local internet service provider AccessTel and Malaysia-based DiGi Telecommu-nications have been made co-accused for aiding Grameenphone to transfer millions of international calls through VoIP, bypassing the state-run telephone company. Bangladesh Telegraph and Telephone Board enjoys the monopoly of routing international calls, which is licensed service.

Sub-inspector Shrif Ahmed of Gulshan police station Monday said that BTRC had filed the case against the mobile phone operator and a number of its former and present officials.
