Monday 25 November 2013 | 14:16 CET | News
Claro said it will appeal against the recent fine imposed by the Superintendency of Industry and Commerce (SIC) of Colombia for anti-competitive practices, reports El Economista. According to the operator, the fine is both "discriminatory" and "disproportionate". Claro said it will take appropriate legal proceedings for the decision to be reviewed. SIC confirmed the penalty imposed on the mobile operator at COP 87.750 million for alleged restrictive practices to competition.
