At the end of December staff off “KROK Incorporated” CJSC actively obstructed an unscheduled on-site inspection carried out under the frame of a large antimonopoly investigation on supplying computers and software for public needs.  The company is also a respondent to the bid-rigging case on “Vybory” State Automated System.

In particular, they attempted to prevent FAS inspection in the company territory and premises. As a result FAS officers were able to get to the inspected facility only upon arrival of the police, which hampered and delayed the inspection significantly. FAS officers drew up Acts on obstruction against corporate executives and Protocols on administrative violations: against Acts on obstruction and Protocols on administrative violations and corporate executives under Article 19.4.1 of the Code of the Russian Federation on Administrative Violations.

The company failed to submit requested documents (information) within the designated period or provided incomplete information in the course of an inspection; as a result of which FAS opened two administrative cases under Article 19.8 of the Code on Administrative Violations.

Head of FAS Anti-Cartel Department, Andrey Tenishev, commented: “Fines for failure to submit information or late submission to the antimonopoly body can be up to 500,000 RUB for each such event. It is one of the tools available to FAS which is designed to support full and comprehensive antimonopoly investigation”.
