MTN Uganda takes ex-employee to court

MTN Uganda takes ex-employee to court.

A Sh600 million fraud case against a former MTN employee kicked off in a Ugandan court last week.

The mobile network's former logistics officer, Naphtali Were, faces three counts of forgery and attempted fraud, according to reports.

The case against him is being heard at a magistrate's court in Kololo, Uganda.

Were faces allegations that he forged documents instructing MTN's finance department to pay Sh600 million to a fake Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) bank account .

Were claims the charges are trumped up because he exposed tax evasion allegations against MTN officials.

However, last year Uganda's director of public prosecutions (DPP) withdrew investigations of tax evasion regarding MTN owing to a lack of evidence.
