Despite a million-dollar fine, the Danish parking company is dragged to the High Court

The parking company EasyPark has already been fined one and a half million kroner in the district court. But now the Consumer Ombudsman will appeal the verdict.

Consumers' watchdog The Consumer Ombudsman will not accept the verdict that the Danish branch of the parking company EasyPark has received.

The P-company must pay a fine of one and a half million kroner for having violated the Act on Market Organizations. But because the violations date back several years, the company can only be sentenced according to old rules with a lesser penalty.

But the Consumer Ombudsman does not agree with the district court's interpretation of the case. Therefore, the Procesbevillingsnævnet has been asked for approval that the case can continue in the High Court.

This is stated by the Consumer Ombudsman in a press release .

– I do not agree with the interpretation of the Marketing Act's so-called transaction concept that the Court in Lyngby has put as a basis, and therefore I also believe that there is a need for the High Court to be given the opportunity to decide on the case, says consumer ombudsman Torben Jensen.

Back in April, the court in Lyngby fined EasyPark for not being good enough to inform motorists of a fee in connection with the use of the app, which is paid for parking.

The public transport company itself does not have many comments on the verdict. However, the company believes that it has made 'several changes' in relation to what it is now condemned for.

– We have noted the judgment from the Court in Lyngby. The case concerns an old version of the app, and we have made several improvements since then, writes Lotte Woldiche Præstgaard, who is Regional Director – Nordics & Netherlands – at EasyPark in a reply to DR.
