Abstract

In view of a recent judgment of the European Court of Human Rights, in the Menarini case (27 September 2011), the authors argue that the EU courts will have to scrutinize competition law fines imposed by the European Commission more closely. The Commission itself will also need to observe fair trial principles more rigorously. These submissions are illustrated with examples.

Keywords: EU competition law, European Convention on Human Rights, competition law fines, judicial review of Commission decisions
