Turkcell to refile case against MTN after US court ruling

Thursday 2 May 2013 | 10:48 CET | News
Turkcell has filed a notice of dismissal of its complaint in the US against MTN Group and MTN International (Mauritius), after the US Supreme Court's 17 April decision on jurisdictional authority, presuming against extra-territoriality in the Kiobel vs Royal Dutch Petroleum case. In light of the Kiobel ruling, Turkcell has voluntarily dismissed the matter, based only upon jurisdiction, without prejudice to the merits of the case, and has decided to re-file the case in another jurisdiction.
