The Council of State confirmed the cancellation of the fine of 29 million euros that had been imposed by the Italian Competition Authority on the companies of the Onorato Group on February 28, 2018 for an alleged abuse of a dominant position. This was reported by the group in a note.


“The sentence, which confirms that of the Lazio TAR of June 2019, censures – explains the company – the sanction initially imposed by the Agcm following the complaint presented by some companies and a competitor. The sentence of the Council of State confirms therefore the observations of the TAR which had highlighted a total superficiality of the investigation conducted by the Agcm – completely incomprehensibly aligned with the theses of the complaint, without having carried out the appropriate verifications of the case – canceling the sanction “.
