Colombia: Record fine set against UBER

The Superintendence of Industry and Commerce of Colombia ratified a major fine against the local branch of Uber, for breaching the recommendations and orders imposed by the authority. Three individuals were also sanctioned for having collaborated with the obstruction of dawn raids carried out in 2017.

During the visit, the SIC stated, the company sought to obstruct officials, in addition to pointing out that the delivery of minutes, statutes and other necessary documents was not made, since the company failed performed the necessary processes.

The sanction also applied to three individuals who collaborated with the obstruction to the dawn raids. The persons are Natalia Patricia Caroprese ($14,906,000 pesos, USD$4,300) and Felipe Alberto Sandoval ($28,843,480, USD$8,300 approximately) who served as legal advisors to UBER Colombia, and Andrés Felipe Bedoya, who served as manager of the Uber offices at the time of the visit, who was fined $4,968,600 (approximately $ 1,444).
