EP to discuss fines in competition cases

with one comment

Looks quite unusual, but the European Parliament will host a debate on fines for competition infringements. A well informed friend sent me an email indicating:

The following items are on the agenda of next week mini-Plenary session, Wednesday afternoon, 6 October:

– […]

– Commission statement – Commission fines in antitrust cases

Not sure what to expect from this… At any rate, please note that the first conference of the BSC will come shortly, and will be devoted to sanctions for competition law infringements. My own personal viewpoint is that disqualification orders are the most efficient and fair possible penalty.
