Uber, Careem appeal Administrative Court ruling ordering their closure
Uber, Careem appeal Administrative Court ruling ordering their closure: Ride-hailing apps Uber and Careem have filed an appeal with the Supreme Administrative Court against last week’s ruling suspending the companies’ licenses in Egypt, Al Mal reports. The appeal, which challenges charges by taxi drivers of the companies operating illegally, says that the apps are operating legally after receiving licenses from the Investment Ministry and the government. The companies say they are waiting for the passage of the Ride-Hailing Apps Act — currently with the House Transport Committee — to regulate their business. The appeal also points out that the companies themselves do not own any cars. Both companies have thus far been operating normally, despite a spokesperson for the plaintiffs claiming the ruling went into effect immediately. The State Lawsuits Authority had also filed a separate appeal against the ruling earlier this week.
