EU freezes billions in aid for Poland pending price-fixing probe

Poland has hit out at an “incomprehensible” decision by the European Commission to freeze aid worth billions for Polish road building programs over a suspected price-fixing scandal.

The European Commission froze funds worth PLN 3.5 billion for three projects managed by Poland’s highways agency, the GDDKiA, after Polish prosecutors charged 11 people with attempting to create a cartel.

The Commission said those charged are 10 current and former managers for large construction firms and one highways agency director.
