Sweden - Radio documents illegal practices of Uber - October 31, 2016

The low-cost spin-off of US-founded Uber was touted as a car-sharing service, which in theory would allow it to accept drivers without taxi licences. However, the courts took a different view, and the brakes were eventually put on the app by its parent company last spring after a series of convictions of drivers. By May, around 21 drivers for UberPOP had been found guilty of driving taxis illegally, and the tally of convictions is now said to be as high as 60. Sverige Radio produced several files about the case.
