Argentine court rejects suspension of AFSCA-AFTIC merger

Monday 11 January 2016 | 10:40 CET | News
A judge in La Plata has rejected the request for suspension of the Argentine government's plans to merge the communications and telecoms regulators AFSCA and AFTIC. The decision ruled that the executive has the power to intervene in public bodies following the emergency decree passed last week to set up the new telecommunications regulator Enacom, to be headed by Miguel de Godoy. AFSCA delegate Guillermo Guerin had previously requested the suspension of the government's intervention at the regulator.
