MTN responded to allegations that it has facilitated human rights violations by governments & failed to ensure user privacy

MTN appreciates the input on MTN Group’s work on digital human rights: the perspectives of our many stakeholders support our efforts to continue to enhance our approach... Our approach to digital human rights is underpinned by a sound policy and due diligence framework and is managed through multi-disciplinary teams across our markets. Training is given to employees and suppliers alike, guided by our supplier code of conduct. To further strengthen our approach on this critical issue, we work closely with Ranking Digital Rights and GSMA, among numerous other organisations... With a view to increasing the disclosure of our impact on society, human rights and the environments in which we operate, we publish a suite of complementary positions and reports... We will also soon publish our first Transparency Report, which will be available on our website and which we will update regularly.
