This amicus brief was submitted on behalf of the Centro de Estudios de Derecho de la Competencia (CEDEC) in support of the articles of the Colombian competition law that allow the termination of an investigation through the offering of compromises. The Colombian Constitutional Court will be considering the question whether article 4 (numeral 12) and article 52 of the Decree 2153 of 1992 are unconstitutional. The brief describes the termination of proceedings through the acceptance of compromises in several jurisdictions, distinguishes the institution from leniency programs and argues for its constitutionality in the light of the Colombian 1991 Constitution.
