antitrust complaint against Google
one the agency had originally declined to look into.Google maintains no laws have been breached and that its practices do not impede competition.Google faces and has faced various antitrust examinations elsewhere, most notably in the European Union and Russia, as well as other complications prior in Turkey.
The investigation in Turkey is the latest legal problem for Google, which faces three separate competition charges in Europe and has already been found to breach antitrust legislation in Russia. United States officials have also investigated the company over its Android and search services, but they have not brought a case.
Google denies that it has broken any laws, saying that its digital services like search and online maps do not hinder those of rivals.
The number of regulatory investigations worldwide represents a growing threat for the company, just as other Silicon Valley giants like Facebook and Amazon increasingly challenge Google in the race to create new tech gadgets and digital services.
This is not the first time that Google has faced setbacks in Turkey. Over the past few years, the country’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has repeatedly blocked YouTube, Google’s popular video service, and social networks — services often used by opponents of Mr. Erdogan to share their dissent.
