EU regulators are close to wrapping up their third case against Enforcement unit Google Between its AdSenseadvertising service, Europe’s antitrust chief AdSense advertising suggesting the company may soon be hit by another hefty fine.
The comments from European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager come four weeks later she levied a listing EUR 4.34 billion ($5 billion) good against Google for using its popular Android mobile working system to block competitions.
That followed a EUR 2.4 billion fine imposed on the company this past year after it thwarted rivals of shopping comparison websites.
The European Commission at 2016 opened a third case when it accused Google of preventing third parties with its AdSense product from displaying search advertisements from Google’s competitors.
“We’re coming to the end of that research,” Vestager told colleagues in the Web Summit in Lisbon when asked for an update on this investigation.
Vestager can fine companies up to 10 percent of their worldwide turnover for violating EU rules.
