The ride-sharing company Uber has been hit with a $50 million fine by the country’s top court for alleged antitrust violations.
Uber and its parent company, Alphabet Inc., are facing accusations of misleading regulators about its cost structure and charging customers based on their location, rather than the actual distance traveled.
The decision by the Beijing Municipal Regulatory Commission, the countrys highest court, comes days after the country passed a law allowing for stricter regulation of ride-hailing companies.
The new law also expands the list of “non-economic” transportation services Uber can offer.
Uber has also been sued by local governments in China, which has banned the service since last year.
