CTIA: We cannot tolerate discrimination of consumers

(Partial report of second quarter of 2013)

(Prague, September 19, 2013) All forms of consumer discrimination are monitored by the CTIA inspectors throughout the year. This regards sale of goods and provision of services, including discrimination of disabled persons and use of double prices for the same goods or services. In the 2nd quarter of 2013, discriminatory conduct was detected in five of 252 inspections. “We cannot underestimate the fact that in two of the five cases there was a suspicion of race discrimination. Despite these are random cases, the Czech Trade Inspection Authority pays permanent attention to the issue. Our goal is to penalize any discriminatory act that harms consumers and we take actions to prevent further illegal conduct,” said Vladimír Velčovský, the Director General of the CTIA.
