Investigation in to Cyprus Bar Association unlawful fee fixing

Frances Lewis made this Informationsfreiheit request to Generaldirektion Wettbewerb

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

We're waiting for Frances Lewis to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Competition,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

Further to your announcement in November 2018 whereby the Cyprus Bar agreed to abrogate minimum fees after being found guilty of unlawful fee fixing I would like a copy of the full investigation report please (not just the summary or the press release). I note the investigation has closed and therefore you cannot avoid providing this information on the basis that the investigation is ongoing.

It is in the public interest to understand the nature of the investigation and the findings of the investigation so that consumers can know what to look out for and companies can avoid such offences in the future.

Yours faithfully,

F Lewis

Dear Competition,

I forgot to add that I would like you to provide the basis for private recovery actions in the Courts by overcharged clients.

Yours faithfully,

F Lewis

Dear Mr Lewis,

 

We refer to your email sent on 2/8/2020 with the request for access to
documents and other information.

 

Unfortunately we cannot find in our database your postal address which is
required for registering and handling your request in line with the
procedural requirements under Regulation 1049/2001.

 

Please send us your full postal address at your earliest convenience.
Pending your reply, we reserve the right to refuse the registration of
your request.

 

You may, of course, use directly the electronic form for entering your
request:

You have lodged your application via a private third-party website, which
has no link with any institution of the European Union. Therefore, the
European Commission cannot be held accountable for any technical issues or
problems linked to the use of this system.

 

Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website
is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data
via that website, and not the Commission. For further information on your
rights, please refer to the third party’s privacy policy.

 

We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website
usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the
Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may
have communicated to the Commission (e.g. your private postal address).

 

Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the
Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by
the AsktheEU.org website.

 

If you do not wish that your correspondence with the Commission is
published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can
provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further
correspondence.  In that case, the Commission will send all future
electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address,
and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You
should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website
about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply
from, the Commission.

Dear Competition,

Well that is quite bizarre isn't it. I am logged into this site and have given my personal details. Other areas of the European Union have provided information, but you cannot. Ask Ms Rodriguez Galindo who I am and where I live.

Ask the owners of this site who I am and where I live. I cannot use this site unless I am logged into it.

Moreover, you aren't sending them to my postal address, you are going to publish them here, for all to see.

You are reserving your right not to answer my request, when you are required to do so. You want me to go somewhere else and register my request so that the hundreds of victims of the Cyprus Bar illegal fee fixing scam won't see it. Why is that? Why does this site work for others, but not for you?

I'd like an internal review please and so I don't understand your position.

Yours faithfully,

F Lewis
