OSLO Nov 30 A Russian court on Friday dismissed
claims brought against Norway's Telenor by Russia's
competition watchdog, Telenor said on Friday.
The Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) last week dropped its
case against Telenor for raising its stake in Vimpelcom,
paving the way for the Russian mobile firm to resume dividend
"Today, the Court accepted the FAS's withdrawal of its
claims, terminated the case and lifted all injunctions that were
in effect," Telenor said in a statement.
The FSA filed a lawsuit in April to contest Telenor's
dominant stake in Vimpelcom whose strategic importance, the
regulator believed, required it be kept free of foreign control.
