Who you gonna call? Anti-monopoly Office's non-disclosure practice
  • Slovakia
  • June 16 2016

The Anti-monopoly Office recently found that by informing an external lawyer, Tesco had violated its obligation to cooperate. For this and other violations in this regard, the Anti-monopoly Office fined Tesco approximately €1.6 million. Tesco appealed. Although the appeal decision set boundaries on the Anti-monopoly Office's use of this practice, it confirms that the practice is not in contradiction of the law – especially the right to defence.
