The local units of mobile telecom companies Orange (ORAN.PA) and MTN (MTNJ.J) in Cameroon have been fined over $160 million (112.88 pound) for failing to pay taxes on games and gambling services, the Central African nation’s corruption board said on Wednesday.
A wide-reaching probe into the sector led to fines totalling $283 million, and found other companies including Camtel and Viettel were also in violation of regulations.
The amount paid by each company was not clear and the companies were not immediately available for comment.
