MOSCOW, August 16. /TASS/. The Ninth Arbitration Court of Appeal adjourned considering the appeal of Google against the case of the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) until August 17. The company demands to cancel the FAS decision on Internet search engine violating the competition law by abusing its dominant position on the market of pre-installed shopping apps for the Android OS.
"The Ninth Arbitration Court of Appeal adjourned the consideration of Google appeal against FAS until the morning of August 17, 2016," the report said.
It was reported earlier, that FAS determined the fine in the amount of 438 mln rubles ($6.7 mln) penalty for US Google Corporation.
According to the applicable law, Google must pay the fine within two months from the date the decision of FAS enters into force.
In March 2016, the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) initiated administrative proceedings against Google in view of the abuse of dominant position on the market of operating systems for mobile devices in Russia.
In January 2016, Head of FAS Igor Artemyev said Russia’s competition law violation penalty for US Google Corporation will most likely amount to 7% of the turnover in 2014 with addressed inflation. According to Artemyev, the fine will most likely be 7% of the annual turnover, subject to various factors and aggravating circumstances: protraction of process, etc.
On September 14, 2015, the Federal Antimonopoly Service ruled that Google Inc. and Google Ireland Ltd. had breached the competition protection law under the complaint of the Russian Internet company Yandex. According to the regulator, Google obliged manufacturers of Android OS-based devices to pre-install its applications together with Android platform. FAS said that Google’s policy restricted installation of applications by other developers. Google did not agree with the ruling and appealed to the court.
