BANNED car-ride app Uber has vowed to continue operating in Spain.
Despite being banned by a Spanish judge on December 9, the lift-share company has insisted it will fight the case in court.
Telecom companies and payment service providers were ordered by the court to block Uber – which was founded in California in 2009 – following a lawsuit brought by the Madrid Taxi Association.
The judge described these as ‘precautionary measures’ while the case is examined.
“Uber will continue to respect Spanish law but has decided to challenge the precautionary measures,” the company said.
“Uber is confident that when it can set out its arguments before the court, these unusual measures will be lifted. Uber will therefore continue offering its services to Spanish consumers will it considers its challenge.”
