BRUSSELS -- The European Commission has yet to decide whether to appeal against a decision by a European Union court to cut an anti-trust fine for DaimlerChrysler, a Commission spokesman said.
"We have not yet decided whether to appeal or not," Commission competition spokesman Jonathan Todd said.
Earlier on Wednesday, EU Competition Commissioner Neelie Kroes has said "yes" when asked by a reporter if he had understood correctly from previous comments by Kroes that the Commission had decided not to appeal.
She said in the same briefing she might have been misunderstood on the appeal issue.
Last month the EU Court of First Instance cut a fine to be paid by DaimlerChrysler in a competition case to 9.8 million euros ($11.72 million) from an original 72 million euros ordered by the European Commission.
