Comium who recently acquired a new international investor with whom it signed a management agreement in the objective of resolving all the current financial and network issues including bringing 4G and 5G to Gambia at a later stage, was shocked by PURA’s decision to suspend the network on October 5, 2021.
This surprising news came after thorough positive meetings that were held between Comium new management and PURA, in which Comium and its new international investor showed a sign of goodwill by paying the amount of 14,000,000 Dalasi of its gross dues, and also expressed its determination to pay out the remaining amount, without even relating this payment to its due receivable of 21,000,000 Dalasi from Gamtel.
Despite the dues from Gamtel , Comium new management and its international investor are still committing to proceed immediately in settling the remaining, and they shall provide within one month period, a full-year of network upgrade plan; provided that PURA stops immediately the network suspension and will not tie them to any conditions that would jeopardize the kickoff of the new era of telecommunication in the company and the country.
Noting that the new move of Comium will not only improve the economic situation in Gambia with the new investment but will also create additional job openings increasing the existing Comium workforce by at least 30%, while safeguarding the main source of living of the current 125 employed families in the company.

Will Comium case be taken to another level, expose corruption and take authority heads to court?
Comium settled all its 2020 dues and 2021 PURA fees. It has also agreed and signed with the tax authorities on 2021 payment plans, as learned from accurate and reliable sources.
So why is PURA still suspending Comium license?
Unfortunately, with all Comium’s efforts to safeguard the jobs of its employees, the government, PURA and the minister of information and communication infrastructure have not taken any action to protect the source of living of more than 125 families; they did not lift a finger to solve their issue! While Gambians were expecting urgent and extensive day-to-day meetings in order to reach a positive resolution that would not jeopardize those family’s income, nothing was done at this level until today. If no sign of wavering sees the light immediately, the country will suffer an economic downfall, and scare away any potential foreign investor too.
Following these stated facts, we have come across a classified information, that Comium will be taking legal actions against this corruption network that is having zero empathy to the people of Gambia who will suffer hunger and poverty due to loss of jobs.
Is the government ready to suffer the consequences of its actions? Will this state of corruption endanger some Gambian political heads?
We will keep you updated and expose the names of the corruption that is harming the Gambians.
VEON’s Beeline and Leading Medical Institute Join Forces to Redefine Future of Medical Diagnostics Through AI
VEON Ltd. (NASDAQ: VEON, Euronext Amsterdam: VEON), a leading global provider of connectivity and internet services, announced on October 12, that its mobile operator in Russia, Beeline, has signed an agreement with Sechenov University to create an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Laboratory for research and development into new technology solutions for healthcare, aiming to simplify and accelerate high-precision diagnostic.
The new AI Laboratory will see data scientists and doctors collaborate on research and development of predictive medicine solutions in traumatology and oncology. Over 120 professionals from Beeline and Sechenov University, including data scientists, solution architects, neural network programmers and medical experts, will be involved in the new AI Lab to provide a critical mass of expertise. The AI Labs will undertake specific research programmes, scientific exchange and staff secondments, with IT infrastructure provided by Beeline’s datacentres.
“Technology based on artificial intelligence is transforming modern medicine” states Kaan Terzioglu, CEO of VEON Group. “We have invested in AI at the core of our digital operator businesses and are proud of our contribution to the development of state-of-the-art technology. This will be a game-changer in the way we support medical institutions, save lives and keep people healthy throughout their lifetime.”
“This joint AI Lab will enable smart software solutions to be trained by findings from some of the best doctors in the industry and so help to significantly simplify and expedite high-precision diagnostics processes. said Evgeny Chereshnev, Executive Vice President of Beeline for Digital and New Business Development. “This greatly increases the chances of successful treatment of patients, and sometimes, literally saves lives. Our partnership with Sechenov University is a new direction for Beeline which is already yielding results. Sechenov’s experts are some of the best in the world, and we are delighted to be working with them to develop and apply high-tech solutions.”
“Our partnership with Beeline began earlier this year. In particular, we focused on the study of joint pathology in the framework of Laboratory of Smart Nanotechnology for Clinical Applications supported by Megagrant from Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation. Based on the analysis of more than 4,000 medical records, we managed to create a model that determines the type of pathology and its localization with over 80% accuracy. This technological solution can help doctors significantly accelerate the process of diagnosing joint pathologies and its accuracy, and also makes it possible to predict the possible disease, track the effectiveness of treatment and dynamically make adjustments to it. For a patient, this can open the way for timely help and medical treatment instead of surgery,” explains Petr Glybochko, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, prof., MD, Rector of the Sechenov University. “The next step would be to work with the Russian healthcare system to test AI diagnostics in a clinical environment. In the future, we plan to extend our work to the field of cardiology, immunology, pulmonology and post-covid therapy.”
“The development of AI solutions in medicine and their introduction into practical healthcare will enable the solving of complex diagnostic problems at a new level. New software solutions, based on the use of neural networks and artificial intelligence will be integrated in electronical medical records for the Russian Healthcare System. The project will create a collaboration of IT engineers and medical experts that builds the preconditions for a real technological breakthrough. This can enable the creation of “digital twins” and their introduction into clinical practice. This is one of the main directions of development of Sechenov University within the framework of the Priority 2030 project, which will be implemented thanks to the cooperation of specialists from Sechenov University and VEON’s Beeline,” said Petr Glybochko, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, prof., MD, Rector of the Sechenov University.
