Alert over mast radiation in Bahrain
Manama, June 5, 2013
People concerned about emissions from telecom masts in Bahrain are being advised to contact municipal officials, who will dispatch a team of specialists to inspect individual sites, said a top official.
Municipalities and Urban Planning Affairs Minister Dr Juma Al Ka'abi told MPs added that an international firm conducted a study on phone mast radiation in Bahrain and found the emission levels were safe and fell within international standards, according to a report in the Gulf Daily News.
"We take violators who set up masts without permits to the Public Prosecution and have removed two masts," he said. "We will remove more in future." – TradeArabia News Service
