In 2013 the Competition Council – Latvia's competition watchdog–ruled that Latvijas Gāze has to pay a €2.2m fine for declining gas delivery contracts to households who refused to cover the previous' tenants debts.
The company was ordered to re-start making such contracts and pay the fine into the state budget.
Latvijas Gāze contested the ruling but in fall 2015 it was upheld at a second-instance court. Latvijas Gāze appealed again but, as Wednesday's decision shows, to no avail.
The ruling is final and cannot be appealed.
