13 vehicle traders face action for rigging bids at auctions
The Competition Commission of Singapore (CCS) is taking 13 motor vehicle traders to task for anti-competitive actions.
In a statement on Thursday afternoon, the Commission accused the traders of contravening the Competition Act.
The group was said to have engaged in an anti-competitive agreement to suppress bids at public auctions of motor vehicles.
The CCS said that the infringing conduct involved bid-rigging through an agreement to suppress bids at these auctions, which has the "object of preventing, restricting or distorting competition".
