EU: Brussels set to fine car seat belt, airbag cartel in coming weeks

 |  November 15, 2017

The decision by the European Commission followed a six-year long investigation following dawn raids in June 2011. Regulators worldwide have gone after numerous cartels, levying billions of euros in fines and even putting some executives in jail.
