Saudi regulator says telcos engaged in spamming face SR25m in penalties

Saudi Arabia's Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC) has said telecoms firms in the kingdom indulging in bulk messaging of promotional material without entering into an agreement with the authorities concerned for such activities may have to pay SR25m in penalties, Arab News has reported. The commission has already looked into some cases of licensed service providers who violated the norms, a CITC spokesman said. "Their licences were cancelled after the committee found that they had indeed infringed on telecoms laws by sending spam messages, which could involve fraudulent content," he said.
