ISTANBUL, Jan 29 (Reuters) - Turkey's telecoms watchdog said on Tuesday it would have to approve any change in control of Turkcell, the country's biggest mobile phone operator, a day ahead of a British court ruling which could leave the firm with no major Turkish shareholder.
Britain's Privy Council is due to rule on Wednesday in a long-running battle Turkey's Cukurova holding company and Altimo, the telecoms arm of Russia's Alfa Group, which could be awarded Cukurova's 13.8 percent Turkcell stake.
