BELGIUM-EU-ALMUNIA-ANTITRUST

EU competition commissioner Joachim Almunia gives a press conference on March 6, 2013 at EU headquarters in Brussels about fining US giant Microsoft 561 million euros (730 million US dollars) for failing to provide clients with a choice of Internet browser, as it had promised to do. The commission said this was the first time it was sanctioning a company for having failed to live up to commitments made to satisfy a previous EU complaint, making this a 'very serious infringement.'
