Two men have been accused of stealing confidential information about Etisalat customers, according to local media.

The National has reported that a 42-year-old Indian named as ‘T A’ and a 38-year-old Pakistani named as ‘M A’ appeared at the Federal Supreme Court this week.

They are being tried separately on charges that they supplied the information to intelligence officers in their respective home countries.

The next hearing is reportedly scheduled for October 5.

It is unclear whether the men are Etisalat employees or whether they obtained the information through other means.

Arabian Business has contacted Etisalat for comment and further information.
