Appeal against fine imposed by Indonesian Competition Commission

Partners Chandra HamzahAsep Ridwan and Farid Fauzi Nasution from Assegaf Hamzah & Partners are representing Tirta Investama, the Indonesian bottled water subsidiary of Danone, on an appeal against a Rp13.8 billion (almost US$1m) fine imposed by the Indonesian Competition Commission (KPPU) for alleged abuse of its dominant position against another bottled water producer. The South Jakarta District Court overturned KPPU’s decision and dismissed the fine. KPPU lodged an appeal to the Supreme Court, while Tirta filed a counter appeal against KPPU’s objection.
