Paarlberg fine withdrawn by AFM



On 16 December 2014, the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) imposed an administrative fine on Mr M.S. Paarlberg. The AFM decided to withdraw the administrative fine in its decision on appeal dated 06 October 2015. The decision to impose a fine related to violation of the obligation to notify a certain equity interest.

(1) The AFM has withdrawn the Decision to impose a fine.

The reason for withdrawing the decision to impose a fine is that the AFM reconsidered its decision pursuant to Mr Paarlberg's objection, and concluded that he cannot be considered to hold the equity interest to which the notification obligation applies and that he was therefore not subject to any notification obligation.
Interested parties can submit the AFM's judgment contained in the decision to the courts for review.

The AFM is committed to promoting fair and transparent financial markets.

As an independent market conduct authority, we contribute to a sustainable financial system and prosperity in the Netherlands.
