As a licensed entity operating under Myanmar law, while also being subject to martial law at critical locations, Telenor Myanmar had to balance a difficult situation. The safety and security of employees in Myanmar remained the company’s primary priority during this period. From 14 February 2021 it was made clear to Telenor that further disclosures of authority directives could have serious people security consequences. Based on a holistic evaluation balancing our principle of transparency with the safety of employees in Myanmar, the practice of transparency was stopped. The established assessment processes of authority directives continued regardless up until the ownership change on 25 March 2022.
Telenor continues to strive for transparency in its handling of authority directives across all operations. For disclosures related to all business units, including Myanmar, please refer to our annual Authority Request Disclosure reports.
