French newspaper Le Pariksien has reported that a complaint has been made with the Paris Commerce Court against e-commerce super-giant Amazon for abusing their dominate position in the market.
This complaint will cause a two year investigation into Amazon from the DGCCRF which is a consumer fraud investigation company. The Economy Ministry is seeking a retribution stack of $10 million euros ($11.8 million USD), and they have also confirmed this complaint to be true and not taken as a warning.
A DGCCRF official named Loic Tanguy told Le Parisien that "The platform imposes unbalanced relations to its vendors."
Amazon has been questioned on this complaint but the only response so far is that the company doesn't comment on legal proceedings.
