Ganley’s Rivada Networks threatens to sue CNN over alleged defamation
Declan Ganley has previously confirmed that Rivada has submitted its interest to the American government for the contract, which CNN reported as being worth “untold billions”.

Rivada Networks, a US-focused telecoms network company founded by Declan Ganley, the Irish businessman, has put CNN, the US news channel, on notice of its intention to bring defamation proceedings.
