The company is analyzing information on its activities in Indonesia and four other countries on the continent.
One of the legal fronts that has opened the Uber ridehailing company could give more problems than initially expected. The company is being investigated by federal authorities to determine if undue payments have been made to foreign officials, which has led them to review their operations in Asia. Apparently, Uber has detected bribes to police in Indonesia.
The San Francisco unicorn is investigating between registries of different foreign offices, and has apparently registered suspicious actions among its affiliates in Indonesia and four other Asian countries. It would be India, Malaysia, South Korea and China , where Uber left last year after selling the business to Didi Chuxing, its main rival in this market.
According to Bloomberg , Uber would have set to work after the Justice Department began an investigation into whether the company has broken the law prohibiting bribery of foreigners.
The company founded by exoO Travis Kalanick would be working with a law firm to review foreign payment records, also talking to several employees. These investigations would have detected a series of irregularities, observing several agreements and suspicious deals .
For example, a number of government-related financial arrangements that might have influenced local law are being investigated in Malaysia.
From the passenger transport company they have only emphasized that they are collaborating with the authorities, avoiding commenting to seniors.
Of the various problems that Uber has faced in recent months, the legal front is one of the most active. Defended by Waymo for stealing confidential information, San Francisco also faces investigations into using programs to spy on rivals or evade authorities.
