More Jez Corden propaganda nonsense
A CMA director, who blocked Microsoft's Xbox-Activision merger, previously worked for a Sony law firm (Update)Conflict of interest identified?www.windowscentral.com
No Jez he did not work for a "Sony Law Firm". He worked at a law firm 10 years ago that today represents Sony. The name of the law firm is Cleary Gottlieb. Florian Mueller fails to provide a scrap of evidence that Raftery worked a case for Sony 10 years ago, or that Cleary Gottlieb represented Sony during his time there. The law firm does not represent Sony in the UK over these affairs, where the CMA preside, so Muller artfully says they represent Sony "internationally" instead.
Also the CMA's investigations are all done independently of the CMA's board, and Raftery wasn't the director overseeing this case.
And at the same time Mueller is very excited about this happening
