The watchdog in charge of state aid enforcement in Bosnia and Herzegovina – the State Aid Council – has cleared state aid to Tuzla International Airport.
As has been the case in previous years, the Serbian Competition Commission used the end of the year to close some of the cases it had been working on. This time, the Commission did so with two investigations: one concerning bid rigging in the field of overhaul of rail vehicles and the other about vertical price fixing. In both investigations the Commission had used dawn raid to gather evidence.
Criminal sanctions for competition law infringements came into the spotlight in Serbia at the end of 2016, when the Serbian Parliament adopted amendments to the Criminal Code. Nevertheless, it may turn out that the criminalization is only a paper tiger.
