České dráhy, a.s. v European Commission: legality of Commission’s dawn raid

Emily Xueref-Poviac describes České dráhy, a.s. v European Commission: legality of Commission’s dawn raid.

ABSTRACT: Judgments of 20 June 2018, České dráhy v Commission (T‑325/16, EU:T:2018:368), and České dráhy v Commission (T‑621/16, not published, EU:T:2018:367)

In two judgments reviewing the legality of dawn raid decisions adopted by the European Commission against the Czech national railway company, the General Court highlighted the Commission’s powers during investigations.

České dráhy is the Czech state-owned railway operator, active in markets for (i) the supply of passenger transport services and (ii) the provision of railway infrastructure management in the Czech Republic.

In 2016, the Commission adopted two decisions (Cases AT.40156 Falcon and AT.40401 Twins) ordering České dráhy to submit to unannounced inspections under Article 20(4) of Regulation 1/2003.
