Danish court could fine TV2 billions of kroner for late state aid notification after Viasat complaint

Wednesday 25 November 2020 | 13:49 CET | News
TV 2 Danmark will have to pay a penalty for failure to report state aid correctly to the EU Commission, according to news agency Ritzau. CEO Anne Engdal Stig Christensen believes the case could be void on the grounds of passivity or the statute of limitations. If the Eastern High Court rules that TV2 does have to pay, the Danish government will be able to recapitalise the company, she said.
