The Ombudsman will ask the Administrative Court to order an urgent investigation into the 3G auction process and to issue an interim injunction halting the issuing of the licences. 

The Ombudsman's Office had received petitions asking that it investigate the operations of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission and the NBTC's Telecom Committee regarding the auction of the 3G 2.1 GHz spectrum on Oct 16.
