Police raid France Tel offices
France Telecom chief Stephane Richard’s office has been raided as part of a competition probe sparked by rival SFR.
Richard’s office was one of four raided by police and competition authorities earlier this month during the course of an investigation into anti-competitive practices following a complaint by SFR in August, La Tribune reports.
Officers found evidence of discounts being offered to large firms amid a mound of documents seized during the raids on December 9, the newspaper states, citing an insider.
However, it could take up to a year for investigators to wade through the documentation and issue a judgment in the case.
