When karma strikes ... left-liberal propagandistic RTL fined by Competition Authority
We underestimate the amount, we welcome the fact of punishment. Don’t think such a dirt TV can do anything and fly your fool with the authority.
He was punished for prolonging the proceedings and obstructing the disclosure of the facts.
The case began in 2016, when the media council did not consent to M-RTL's acquisition of Central Digitális Média Kft. The transaction was therefore banned by the Competition Authority, but as a result of a review of the Mansion, it had to initiate a new proceeding. In the course of the new investigation, the GVH called on M-RTL to present the current market data and the framework of the transaction in the current circumstances.
In April 2020, M-RTL requested, with reference to the Covid-19 epidemic, an extension of the data submission deadline set by the GVH by 45 days until the end of May. The agency agreed to the company's request.
Nevertheless, in its submission at the end of May, M-RTL did not provide the requested market data, claiming that it did not agree with the GVH's practice, but did not provide such data in any other way. It also provided conflicting information regarding the subject matter of the transaction
the competition authority said.
Due to the inconsistency of the television company's data provision, the GVH could not take action on the mandatory request of the media council at that time, they wrote.
As the conduct of M-RTL necessitated further procedural actions, the Competition Authority imposed a procedural fine of HUF 20 million for delaying the proceedings and obstructing the disclosure of the facts, the announcement states.
