Chile: Consumer association asks company to speed up consumer compensation

 |  May 3, 2016

Chile’s National Corporation for Consumers and Users (CONADECUS) has issued a call for the president of the CMPC holding group, principal orchestrators of the international price-fixing cartel which raised tissue paper prices across South America, to speed up the process for compensating consumers.

“We want to tell the new President stepping in to the CMPC board, that we consumers need for this to be solved as quickly as possible. It can’t be, that we have waited for four months and we still don’t have a concrete proposal” said Hernan Calderón, president of CONADECUS.

The South Metropolitan Region Prosecutor office reviewing the case issued an announcement, communicating their decision not to press on with the investigation into civil charges, due to the refusal by the country’s competition authorities to hand over their files on the case pending their own investigations.
