Eurotunnel: Now it's between France and England

ShippingWatch has learned that Eurotunnel plans to drag the French authorities into the fight against the UK Competition Commission's ruling against the company's ferry division MyFerryLink's right to operate ferries between Dover and Calais.

Eurotunnel plans to involve the French authorities in the battle on the English Channel after the British competitive authority barred the company's ferry division, MyFerryLink, from operating ferries out of Dover.

According to ShippingWatch's sources, the thing that particularly infuriates Eurotunnel is the French authorities' approval in November 2012 of Eurotunnel's purchase of three ferries from bankrupt shipping company SeaFrance on the Dover-Calais route. The company believes that there are two completely different rulings on the table: The one from the French authorities in November, which said "OK," and the one from the UK Competition Commission yesterday, Thursday, which was a clear "No."
