The French antitrust regulator is going to punish Apple for violating competition rules this Monday. Reuters learned this from informants familiar with the issue. The iPhone smartphone maker has been accused of dishonestly promoting products on a distribution and sales network.
Earlier, the Antimonopoly Authority will decide on this issue on Monday, the Politico Europe news website reported. The amount of the fine is still unknown. Last February, Apple said it had reached an agreement with France on the payment of previously unpaid taxes. Then, according to the French media, it was about 500 million euros.
