Schindler Lobbies to Make Executives Pay Cartel Fines, HZ Says

Aug. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Schindler Holding AG is lobbying the Swiss government to make managers responsible for cartel fines by revising a law, Handelszeitung reported, citing an interview with Schindler general counsel Karl Hofstetter.

Schindler was fined 144 million euros ($181 million) in 2007 when it and three other elevator-makers were penalised by the European Union for cartel activity in Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg and The Netherlands.
