Dennis Uy skips Senate probe on PH’s third telco
Citing prior engagements, businessman Dennis Uy skipped on Tuesday the Senate investigation into the entry of a third telecommunications (telco) player in the country.
Uy’s Udenna Corp. is part of Mislatel Consortium, which was recently named by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) as the the new major telco player.
In a letter to the Senate committee on public services dated November 26, Uy promised to “fully cooperate” with the probe by providing input or information that would help the panel in crafting laws.
“Unfortunately, I will be out of town due to a previously scheduled commitment,” Uy said.
The businessman instead sent his chief of staff and Udenna’s Vice President of Corporate Affairs, Adel Tamano, to represent him in the hearing.
Aside from Udenna, the Mislatel Consortium is also composed of state-run China Telecommunication Forum, and Chelsea Logistics Holdings Corp. /jpv
