Côte d'Ivoire: Former Comium employees request President Alassane Ouattara's intervention to force the company to settle their rights

(Ecofin Agency) - The former employees of Comium, a telecom company operating under the brand name Koz, are seeking the intervention of the President of the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire, Alassane Ouattara so that they can finally be paid their social rights.

Comium had been forced to stop activities in 2016 following the withdrawal of its operating license for various breaches, including high unpaid financial fees and low network coverage in the country. After 18 trials over the past three years, the Commercial Court, the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court ordered the sale, by the liquidators of the company's assets, including the headquarters building, so that these fees could be paid.

But recently, the employees have been notified that there will be a 19th trial on December 5. Unsatisfied with this decision, the employees now request the intervention of the President; they say the company is making use of delay tactics so that they give up on the case.

The victims also denounce many deaths due to the abuses they have suffered since the company shut down and the battle started.
