MasterCard Europe today announced its disagreement with today's judgment of the General Court in Luxembourg concerning cross-border interchange fees and said that it intends to appeal the judgment.

Commenting on the judgment, Javier Perez, President, MasterCard Europe said: “MasterCard balances the interests of both consumers and retailers, so that each party pays its fair share of the costs for the benefits it receives. Today's ruling, if it stands, would upset that sharing and tip the balance decidedly against consumers. It would also threaten the continued delivery of the most advanced electronic payment technologies in Europe which, in turn, are essential to facilitating business and driving economic growth.”
