ABSTRACT
The article offers the author's insights on improving effective management of anti-competitive behavior such as price-fixing.

He states that the fine imposed by the Competition Commission must be used to compensate the affected parties. He adds that whistle-blowers must be provided with rewards related to the resulting penalty. .
