CCI won't be intimidated by the arrogance of Amazon, says Future Retail
The company says US e-com major showed disregard to Indian law by walking out of CCI proceedings
Future Retail said on Sunday that it firmly believes that the Competition Commission of India (CCI) will not be intimidated by the arrogance of Amazon. Future hopes that instead, CCI will take action on its show-cause notice against the US-based e-commerce company, in accordance with the law.
This statement comes after Amazon walked out of CCI proceedings on November 24. “The counsels to Amazon, in utter disregard to the norms and utter disrespect to the Indian statutory regulatory authority, refused to argue the matter. They walked out of the proceedings in an attempt to browbeat the CCI,” the Indian retailer said in a stock exchange filing.
In a letter addressed to Future Coupons, CCI said it heard the counsels appearing on behalf of Future Coupon and Confederation of Indian Traders (CAIT) at length. It also called Amazon’s counsel to make its submissions on merits and learned about its inability to argue the matter and stated that making submissions may compromise its special leave petition (SLP) and render it infructuous. Its SLP was to come up before the Supreme Court on November 25.
CAIT had filed public interest litigation in Delhi High Court against CCI, asking it not to delay its ruling in the Amazon-Future Coupons deal. The high court then asked CCI, on November 16, to rule on revoking its approval to the Amazon-Future Coupons deal within two weeks.
“The learned counsel also made a grievance that Amazon did not get sufficient time to file its rejoinder. Accordingly, despite grant of opportunity, the learned counsel did not make oral submissions,” CCI said in its letter to Future Coupons.
Future Coupons lawyer responded to CCI in a letter stating, “The conduct of Amazon smacks of arrogance. It has shown scant respect to the Delhi High Court, the Supreme Court, and to this commission.” Future Coupons also said, in its letter, that the e-commerce major could have moved the Delhi High Court for an extension of time or for a suspension of the order. But it moved the Supreme Court by an interim application relating to the arbitration proceedings, establishing its mistaken belief that the Supreme Court would not deny relief to Amazon.
“When it failed to get relief from the Supreme Court, it then sought an adjournment from the CCI. When that was refused, in a display of outright contempt for an Indian statutory authority, this trillion-dollar American company walked out of the hearing,” the letter said.
During the third day of 2021's San Diego Comic-Con, I went out into the Gaslamp Quarter and ordered a fancy seafood dinner, very briefly went back into the exhibit hall, then went upstairs to join a panel for a Japanese superhero franchise that's starting to make its way to the States--I thought of a different panel but I felt that I didn't want to attend that for very personal reasons. Anyway, this concludes the second day. Good night, everybody. Fans of Pengee, stand by for tomorrow's photographs.
Thus starts the second day of the San Diego Comic-Con in the autumn of 2021 in the Common Era. The exhibit hall opened fairly early, so I already have a robust batch of photographs with the plush Pengee to share. Stay tuned for more.
