The Department of Justice (DOJ) has drafted implementing rules on the criminal provisions of the Philippine Competition Act, said Justice Undersecretary Markk Perete on Tuesday (Feb. 25).

Perete said the DOJ’s Office for Competition (OFC) came up with the draft which will undergo a consultative workshop this Feb. 26 at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC).

He noted that OFC has already posted the draft online has received comments on it before being finalized.

“The draft rules clarify the elements of the crime committed in entering into anti-competitive agreements, and the special rules governing the filing of information and venue for these cases,” the DOJ spokesman said.

“The rules likewise enumerate and guide prosecutors on the application of special rules in the prosecution of these cases, such as the plea of nolo contendere, and the inadmissibility of certain pieces of evidence arising from a party’s prior resort to administrative reliefs before the Philippine Competition Commission,” he added.

Perete also said the draft rules further “establish the procedure for applications for immunity by cartel members who will provide information and assistance essential to the successful prosecution of competition cases.”
