Judge to hand down decision on Symbiote application on January 24

Supreme Court judge Leighton Pusey is to hand down a decision at 2 p.m. on January 24 regarding the application by Symbiote Investments Limited’s which is fighting with the Government to keep its mobile telephone licence.

After three days in court, the parties ended their arguments today.

Lawyers for Symbiote Investments, led by former Solicitor General Douglas Leys, are seeking court orders that would bar the government from revoking the company’s spectrum licence.

The application brought by Symbiote is challenging a letter from the Spectrum Management Authority advising of an investigation relating to the cellular licence.

Symbiote, which trades as Caricel, feels that the probe is leading to the revocation of the $2.7 billion licence signed by the Andrew Holness-led administration in September.
