Italy court extends suspension of TIM fine over Vivendi control
ROME, May 23 (Reuters) - An Italian court extended on Thursday the suspension of a 74.3-million-euro ($82.69 million) fine against Telecom Italia TLIT.MI for failing to notify the government its main shareholder Vivendi VIV.PA had effective control, a preliminary court ruling said.
The Rome-based administrative court extended the terms until at least November 30.
The Italian government applied in October 2017 the so-called "golden power", allowing the government to veto strategic decisions such as asset sales and mergers at businesses deemed to be of strategic national importance.
