FTC Says Jeff Bezos, Others at Amazon Must Testify in Agency’s Probe

WASHINGTON—Amazon.com Inc. founder Jeff Bezos and Chief Government Andy Jassy can’t keep away from testifying in an investigation associated to the corporate’s Prime membership program, the Federal Commerce Fee stated late Wednesday.

Amazon final month requested the FTC to cancel subpoenas issued to Messrs. Bezos and Jassy, arguing that they aren’t steeped within the particulars of Prime’s sign-up and cancellation processes, which is the investigation’s focus. The FTC’s employees started the probe in March 2021, inspecting whether or not the corporate deceived clients into signing up for Prime and didn’t present a easy solution to cancel this system’s recurring prices, in line with the order issued Wednesday.
