French competition authorities search EDF sites, seize documents

PARIS, Nov 25 (Reuters) - French competition authorities have searched the headquarters and other premises of state-controlled utility EDF as part of an investigation into a possible abuse of a dominant position in the energy market, EDF said on Friday.

An EDF spokesman said investigators had seized documents and that EDF is cooperating with the inquiry, which is a preliminary investigation into presumed abuse of a dominant position in the energy supply and energy services industry in France.
