UBER HAS been charged by Danish prosecutors with, “helping to commit illegalities”.
The legal action comes after a Danish appeals court upheld a conviction against an Uber driver, claiming he lacked a licence to drive a vehicle that was not registered as a taxi.
Chief prosecutor Vibeke Thorkil-Jensen said:
The ruling established that Uber is an illegal transport service. Now we need an assessment by a court of law on Uber’s broader activities.
Uber spokesman Daniel Byrne said: “We welcome the opportunity to clarify our legal position to the prosecutor. Uber is helping to create opportunities for 2,000 drivers and their families in Copenhagen.”
