Distributors to tip-off Nokia in Beijing
Over 280 mobile phone distributors from 15 provinces and cities across the country are reportedly coming to Beijing Tuesday to disclose Nokia's "illegal acts", according to the Beijing Morning Post.
Distributor representatives have reportedly submitted three letters to the State Administration of Taxation (SAT), the State Administration For Industry and Commerce (SAIC) and the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC).
The letters claim the world's biggest mobile phone maker monopolizes price, evades tax and infringes consumers' rights in China.
Nokia distributes its mobile phones by dividing different regions in China and fines franchisers if they sell Nokia phones in other regions. Franchisers are allegedly extremely dissatisfied with the overcharged fines and also claim no receipts are provided for the fines.
