Tobacco companies fined £225m19th April 2010
Two tobacco companies and nine retailers have been fined a total of £225 million by the Office of Fair Trading.
The companies were fined because the OFT found them guilty of "unlawful" pricing arrangements between 2001-2003. The OFT stated that it understood that the companies had "linked" the prices of some products in order to curtail competition. The largest fine of £112.3 million was given to Imperial Tobacco.
