Appeal season: The Asia-Pacific Tipline for 28 June 2019
Some important appeals are now on the docket. For the well-established Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, the appeal will focus on whether the country’s Federal Court can accept a remedy that the antitrust watchdog found to be insufficient. For the fledgling Hong Kong Competition Commission, appeals have been filed against its victories in the territory’s first two cartel cases. It has also been an active week elsewhere in Asia-Pacific, with a couple of price-fixing decisions, the resignation of a competition boss and more.
