Grameenphone 'owes $400m in tax', firm disputes claim

The telecoms regulator in Bangladesh says a major mobile phone company, Grameenphone, owes $400m (£254m) in unpaid taxes and fees.

Grameenphone is majority-owned by the Norwegian telecoms firm, Telenor, which disputes the accusation.

Rico Hizon asked Sigve Brekke, the head of Telenor Asia why the company was refusing to pay.
