The lawsuit states that this circular “is part of a series of actions by the National Government, which together with different sanctioning decisions that have been imposed against the mobility technology platforms, seek to protect the particular interest of the taxi drivers’ union, ignoring the right of passenger users to freely choose how to move, the drivers’ right to work, free competition, technological innovation and national and foreign investment.
The appeal states that the circular affects the right to free movement, consumer safety, the free choice of citizens and that it would have been issued to “satisfy the particular interest of a pressure union (despite the fact that this would affects the general interest).
