      CLARIFICATION TO PSEB NEWSLETTER DATED 12TH DECEMBER 2006
      ON ILLEGAL USE OF VOICE OVER INTERNET (VOIP) TECHNOLOGY

        No: 3/12

      December 2006 

      Dear All,

      Pakistan Software Export Board (PSEB) seeks to clarify the news item appeared in the press dated 14th December 2006 pertaining to the issue of seeking permission of Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) by its member companies, for non-commercial VoIP use.

      2. PSEB hereby clarifies that the contents of its newsletter circulated on 12th December 2006 have been misinterpreted. The intention of the newsletter was only to inform member companies about the risk that they may face in using VoIP in order to prevent recurrence of this unfortunate incident. In doing so PSEB was discharging its responsibility of protecting and promoting the IT industry.

      3. Obviously PSEB maintains that the promotion of the IT industry as well as humanitarian considerations warrant a speedy reassessment of rules, procedures and their interpretation in order to prevent a recurrence of this incident. Until, then as the 12th December newsletter intended, we want to inform and caution our members about the risk.

      4. PSEB has been making best efforts to seek the release of Cogilent’s CEO since the day of his arrest. Our position on the matter has been unequivocal. The Managing Director, PSEB paid a visit to FIA on the very first morning of his arrest and helped arrange a lawyer for legal defense. Since the night of the arrest, PSEB has been interacting with the Ministry of Information Technology, PTA and FIA to secure release. In the coming days PSEB intends to work with all stakeholders to ensure a reassessment of rules, procedures and their interpretation in order to prevent a recurrence of this unfortunate incidence.
