Competition Council has penalized and fined Apă-Canal Chişinău enterprise 700 thousands lei after a company complained to be applied differential tariff to service in the municipal sewage system.
Consequently, the Competition Council initiated an investigation, which showed that the institution had imposed different tariff from one provided in the contract signed between the two.
On the other hand, representatives of Apă-Canal Chişinău claim that the fine was applied, because the company did not cancel the pre-treatment contract for wastewater with concentrations increased with this economic agent.
The municipal institution challenged the decision in court, and the lawsuit was handed down to the Chişinău District Court with its headquarters in the Centru sector.
Additionally, an internal investigation has been launched to determine the wrongdoers.
