STOCKHOLM--(Business Wire)--

In relation to the Minister for Financial Markets Peter Norman's statement
today, in which he suggests that it may be reasonable for TeliaSonera's Board to
work towards a time out for senior executives subject to suspected offense in
order to avoid further deterioration of confidence in the company, TeliaSonera`s
Chairman Anders Narvinger makes the following comment.

"The Board of Directors of TeliaSonera has been aware of the fact that a member
of Group Management has been served with indictment since the end of September
2012, and is continuously following up on the question of suspicions related to
TeliaSonera`s investment in Uzbekistan. In light of the ongoing investigations,
the Board has not considered that any senior executive of TeliaSonera should
take a time-out," said Chairman of the Board Anders Narvinger. 

"We are now awaiting Mannheimer Swartling`s investigation. In the event of new
information, which leads to a strengthening of the degree of suspicion against
senior executives, the Board will of course consider the need for a time-out or
other measures."
