The Hungarian Competition Authority (GVH) has received the documents collected in connection with the Strabag-case from a journalist of the weekly Heti Válasz. As Heti Válasz believes these documents contain statements that are indicative of the existence of a cartel. The authority initiated the examination of the documents in question. If based on the data available from the documents Strabag can be suspected to have taken part in a so far clandestine and prohibited agreement restricting competition, then the GVH will initiate an investigation without delay. The GVH is pleased to receive any signal, which draw its attention to an infringement, since sound competition enhances public welfare, thus compliance with and enforcement of the rules for fair competition is of public concern.
