Competition Appeal Tribunal rejects Royal Mail appeal against fine for competition law breach.
The Competition Appeal Tribunal has dismissed Royal Mail’s appeal against Ofcom’s 2018 decision to fine Royal Mail £50 million for breaching competition law.
“We found that Royal Mail pursued a deliberate strategy of pricing discrimination against Whistl, which was its only major competitor for delivering business mail.
“Royal Mail had a special responsibility to ensure its behaviour was not anti-competitive. We hope that our fine, which has been upheld in full by the Tribunal, will ensure that Royal Mail and other powerful companies take their legal duties very seriously.”
