NICARAGUA NEWS — In an effort to cub the theft of cellular telphones and the violence sometimes associated, Nicaragua mobile operators Movistar and Claro have signed an agreement with regulator Telcor and the GSMA on efforts to reduce theft of mobile phones, reports La Prensa.

As a result of the agreement, mobile phones stolen in Nicaragua will be recorded in a central database, managed by the GSMA, ensuring that the device cannot be used in Latin America or elsewhere in the world.

According to Sebastian Cabello, Director of GSMA Latin America, this does not only help in reduction of mobile phone trafficking between countries of the region, but also strengthens mechanisms for public safety and crime reduction, which benefit society in general.
