CAIRO - 19 May 2018: The Higher Administrative Court on Saturday set June 2 to consider an appeal filed by Uber and Careem against a previous ruling to halt both firms' activities in Egypt.
In March, a Cairo court ordered halting the activities of Uber and Careem companies and referring the case to the State Commissioners Authority to give a legal opinion after a number of taxi drivers had pressed charges against the two ride-sharing companies.
The plaintiffs said the two companies use privately-owned vehicles for commercial purposes in violation of the Egyptian law.
