CCPC seeks Supreme Court decision on Irish Cement

CCPC seeks Supreme Court decision on Irish Cement
18 July 2016


The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) will directly appeal to the Supreme Court a High Court decision restraining it from using certain material seized during a dawn raid of CRH subsidiary Irish Cement.

Mr Justice Max Barrett ruled in April that the CCPC was not entitled to access, review or use material in a crh.com email account of CRH executive Seamus Lynch that was unrelated to Irish Cement.

The CCPC has been granted leave by the Court of Appeal to take the matter directly to the Supreme Court. The legal battle sprung out of an investigation into alleged abuse of a dominant position by Irish Cement in the supply of bagged cement in Ireland, which the CCPC is continuing, notwithstanding the High Court ruling.
