Buenos Aires judge orders nationwide block of Uber

(Q24N) A Buenos Aires judge has ordered a nationwide block of Uber. Internet providers are to block Uber throughout Argentina starting Monday, January 30, Prosecutor Martín Lapadú said; however, the request to arrest the directors of the company was not approved.

“Uber breached a court order that barred it from operating in the Argentine capital as of April 2016,” Lapadú said in explaining why the requests were made.

The Municipal Prosecutor’s Office released a statement saying that “their requests are based on the Uber executives never ceasing in their violations but rather continuing to completely ignore judicial mandates by continuing their illegal activity.”

Lapadu reportedly told local media that internet providers could close down Uber’s platforms as long as the blockade order actually spreads across the country.

Drivers for Uber as well as those employed to oversee the company’s activity in Buenos Aires, rejected the measure, saying their activities will not be affected.

“It is not possible to carry out the blockade because the local CABA (City of Buenos Aires) can not order measures outside that city. The normal operation of the application is guaranteed,” the company said in a statement.
