A third of the antennas belonging to cellular phone company Mirs do not have valid operation permits and may be emitting dangerous radiation, it emerged Sunday from an examination conducted by the Environmental Protection Ministry, Army Radio reported. Officials at the ministry were threatening to dismantle the antennas, according to the report. In response to the ministry's allegations, the Mirs company said: "Every transmission site cited by the Environmental Protection Ministry are up to the required standards. Following an administrational mistake, the bi-annual certification process was delayed, and this will be remedied in the near future."
