Uber on Tuesday played down an EU court opinion that some of its services could be illegal.
It said that the case concerned only a ride-hailing app service in France which it no longer provides.
“We have seen today’s statement and await the final ruling later this year.
“This case relates to a French law from 2014 and affects peer-to-peer services which we stopped in 2015, Uber today works only with professional licensed drivers in France,’’ an Uber spokesperson said in an email.
An advocate general for the Court of Justice of the European Union (ECJ) said in a non-binding opinion that illegal transport activities like UberPOP may be criminal.
