GBARNGA, BONG COUNTY-The Liberia Telecommunications Authority (LTA) says it has discovered seventy-nine illegal radio frequencies in Liberia.

LTA Regulatory Analyst, Kwamata Bettie, said:” Fifteen radio stations have begun regularizing their status to meet up with their obligations with the Liberian Government, while the rest are not responding to their obligations.”

Mr. Bettie said that the illegal operation of radio stations is causing serious loss in revenue generation of government.

According to the Liberia News Agency, the LTA Regulatory Analyst made the disclosure over the weekend in Gbarnga, Bong County, at the start of the Press Union (PUL) 55TH Anniversary Celebrations.
Mr. Bettie said the Authority will shortly begin enforcing regulatory measures against illegal frequency owners to ensure compliance and to increase government’s revenue generation capacity.
