Mobile carrier strongly denies Egyptian propoganda accusations.

Following an outbreak of criticism on Twitter, the mobile carrier has come out strongly defending the texts it sent its Egyptian mobile customers, claiming it had no choice in the matter. 

The texts, one of which appeared to criticise the anti-government protesters , encouraging “honest and loyal men to confront the traitors and criminals and protect our people and honour” and was signed off directly from the company.    

Vodafone blames Egyptian authorities, whose leader is beleagured president Hosni Mubarak, for the propoganda style texts.

Another text sent urged Egyptians to attend a pro-Mubarak rally in Cairo on Wednesday.   

“Vodafone Group has protested to the authorities that the current situation regarding these messages is unacceptable. 

We have made clear that all messages should be transparent and clearly attributable to the originator,” the company said in a statement.  

Vodafone also say other carrier in the country were also carrying out similar government orders.
