Erdogan says Uber 'finished' in TurkeyUber faces being banned in Turkey after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the ride hailing app was “finished” on Saturday following an intense lobbying campaign from Istanbul taxi drivers. Erdogan’s comments, in a late night speech Friday in Istanbul, came after the government agreed new rules that are expected to severely complicate Uber’s operations in Turkey.
