Spectrum successfully policed (South Africa)

The ICASA's Pretoria office has seized kit belonging to ArcellorMittal in Pretoria West following what is described as 'illegal use' of the radio frequency spectrum. ICASA initiated an investigation three weeks ago, with an inspection on 24 November 2011, during which it failed to produce licences for the equipment currently being used. It was given 7-days written notice to pay an estimated ZAR 2 million (USD 247,083) in licence fees. Five repeaters and 6 mobile hand-held radios were taken. Other offices will be visited shortly.
