BEIJING, July 29. /Oleg Ostroukhov for ITAR-TASS/. China’s State Administration for Industry and Commerce has announced the launch of an anti-monopoly investigation of Microsoft Corporation activity. The relevant message has been posted on the watchdog’s official website on Tuesday.

“About a hundred of employees of the state administration in Beijing, Shanghai and Chongqing, as well as in provinces of Guangdong, Sichuan, Fujian, Hubei, Jiangsu and Hebei carried out on July 28, 2014, surprise anti-monopoly inspections in four sales departments of Microsoft in continental China, in the headquarters of Microsoft China and the company’s offices in Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu,” the release says.

Suspicions that Microsoft was being violating the anti-monopoly legislation of China arose in June 2013, when the watchdog began studying information obtained from Chinese enterprises over issues of compatibility, sales package contents and verification of files of the Windows operating system and its Office applications, according to the report.
