At the meeting of the Commission for the Protection of Competition (CPC) , held on Friday the 2nd December 2005, the case concerning the complaint filed by Areeba against the Cyprus Telecommunications Authority (CYTA) was concluded.
The investigation against CYTA began in May 2005 and resulted in the Statement of Objections that was issued and served to CYTA regarding the acts and omissions of CYTA, which resulted from the enforcement of the new national mobile rates that came into force on the 1/4/2005. The infringements also, relate to the margin squeeze of the profit between the mobile retail rates that CYTA charges to its customers and the prices for the national roaming that CYTA charges to Areeba .
For the same case the Cyprus Commission for the Protection of Competition issued, on the 5th of July 2005, a decision on interim measures for which CYTA refuses to comply with.
At the above meeting of the CPC, the lawyers of CYTA and of Areeba submitted their final positions and clarifications on their written submissions on the case.
The Commission has reserved the delivery of its decision for the next few days.
