European Commission officials continue inspections at Czech energy firms


Anti-trust officials from the European Commission continued on Wednesday with inspections at the Czech energy giant ČEZ and the EPH firm over allegations of anti-competitive behaviour. A ČEZ spokeswoman said the inspections are expected to last several days. The European Commission officials are looking into whether ČEZ had worked to block competitors in order to boost its own position as the country’s dominant wholesale power supplier, either acting alone or in conjunction with other firms.
