The Turkish Competition Authority fines an electricity distributor and its subsidiary for abuse of dominance (Akdeniz Elektrik)

(“Akdeniz Elektrik”), CK Akdeniz Elektrik Perakende Satış A.Ş. (“CK Akdeniz”) and AK DEN Enerji Dağıtım ve Perakende Satış Hizmetleri (“AK DEN”), which were all part of a single economic entity.
