Vodafone Romania fine case sent back for retrial

Wednesday 16 April 2014 | 14:47 CET | News
Romania's High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ) sent back for retrial, due to procedural flaws, the case in which Vodafone Romania challenged a RON 120.35 million fine applied by the Competition Council (CC) in February 2011, according to local news agency Mediafax. In February 2011, Romania's Competition Council fined Orange Romania and Vodafone Romania a total RON 268.33 million (EUR 63 million) for abusing their dominant positions. The two companies challenged in court the sanctions, and the Bucharest Court of Appeal decided to suspend the payment of fines in May 2013.
