JS body’s query:GP to give statement soon, says CEO

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of GrameenPhone Tore Johnsen Wednesday said his organisation would give its statement later as he did not understand clearly the query of Parliamentary standing committee on labor and employment affairs ministry.

Emerging from the meeting, Tore Jhonsen told the reporters, “I did not realize their query clearly as the rules of procedure of the meeting continued in Bengali language.”

In a query about interpreter, he said though interpreter was present during the time, I failed to understand instantly as the procedure completed too hurriedly. I will render our comment in this regard after taking briefing at my office.

Regarding summoned by JS body, he said we are likely to expose a statement in the evening.

Earlier in the morning, the CEO appeared before the committee’s 24th meeting which started at the parliament building at about 11am.

Earlier on July 8, the parliamentary committee asked the CEO to appear before its 24th meeting to explain the matter.

Over 300 employees of county’s mobile giant Grameenphone (GP) have lost their job so far in the ongoing retrenchment process.

At least 50 employees faced the termination measure in the name of job saving ‘examination’.

So that notorious! ‘Examination’ has become a panic for the GP employees creating a stagnant situation in the company. Those who are still in job they are passing days through frustration and panic.

Earlier GP authority tried to console the anxious employees that they are not terminating anybody but are not in a position to accommodate all for rearranging the company in newer way.
