Antitrust Office confirms Sk11.1 million fine for rail company

The Slovak Antitrust Office has confirmed a fine of Sk11.1 million for railway network operator Železnice Slovenskej Republiky. The rail company is being fined for abusing its dominant position from May 1, 2001 to December 31, 2001, the Antitrust Office wrote a press release on July 16.

According the Antitrust Office, the railway operator violated the Law on Protection of Economic Competition because from May 1 to December 31, 2001, it did not create equal conditions on the cargo railway transport market. This concerned the transport market for bulk materials such as iron ore and coal for large customers on medium and long distance routes in Slovakia.
