Grab Takes Malaysian Regulator To Court Over Fines

 |  February 12, 2020

In October last year, the Malaysia Competition Commission (MyCC) proposed a fine against Grab.  MyCC alleged that the ride-hailing giant abused its dominant position in the local market and imposed restrictive policies on its drivers, therefore harming competition in the e-hailing market.

Now the Singapore-based company is taking MyCC to court. According to a Malaysiakini report, Grab Inc together with its related corporate entities GrabCar Sdn Bhd and MyTeksi Sdn Bhd has filed a leave application for judicial review, through Messrs Shanthi Kandiah Chambers, at the Kuala Lumpur High Court Registry.

The company is seeking among others to quash MyCC’s proposed decision in which it alleged that the ride-hailing platform violated Malaysia’s Competition Act 2010.
