In a statement released today, the Competition Authority (AdC) has sanctioned seven security companies for participating in an “active cartel in the provision of surveillance and security services in public tenders”.

“The AdC concluded that the companies coordinated their participation in public procurement procedures, dividing customers among themselves and fixing the price levels of the services to be provided, from 2009 until, at least, 2020, or until 2018, in the case of Strong Charon”, states the supervisor.
