Inconvenient Evidence Suppressed in EU-Intel Antitrust Case
The antitrust laws currently on the books are so vague, judges and regulators have essentially had to make up their own policies. In other words, they can pretty much do whatever they want.
Look what just happened in Europe. The EU’s ombudsman recently discovered that the EU’s antitrust regulators intentionally suppressed “potentially exculpatory” evidence in their case against Intel.
That case, remember, resulted in a €1,000,000,000 fine against Intel. Unfortunately, the ombudsman’s finding will not affect the case’s outcome. The prosecutor lied and got away with it, in other words.
One more example of why antitrust regulations result in the rule of men, not the rule of law.
