MENAFN has an article by Rahima Al Balushi on the arrest of 212 people in Oman for providing VoIP services.

Excerpt from the article:

(MENAFN - Times of Oman) The Royal Oman Police (ROP) raided 121 cyber cafes throughout the country and arrested 212 people for providing illegal Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoiP) service, a senior police officer said here yesterday.

Many cyber cafes and individuals were found using VoIP technology to provide cheap international phone services to customers, resulting in huge losses for local telecommunication providers, the officer said.

Speaking to Times Of Oman, the officer, on condition of anonymity, said: "Around 212 accused of various Asian nationalities have been arrested since the beginning of the year till October 26."

Of the 121 cases, Muscat reported 42, the highest. "Nineteen cases were reported from Al Dakhilyah and Al Batinah, 18 from Dhofar, 16 from Al Sharqiyah, four from Al Dahirah and three from Al Wusta," the officer said.

"Most arrests were made after the Directorate General of Inquiries and Criminal Investigation was tipped off about people using Internet and some technical devices to sell the cheap calling cards," the officer said.
