ÚOHS imposes fines, state receives only a fraction

Ten highest fines imposed by the Anti-Monopoly Office (ÚOHS) in its history equal the total of CZK 3bn. However, acquittals by courts resulted in cancelling fines of more than CZK 2bn. The issue is the period of time lapsing between issuing decisions by ÚOHS and making judgements by courts. Courts often act according to latest standards. Moreover, most costs of lengthy legal disputes are borne by ÚOHS.
