COPENHAGEN, Denmark - Two months since the ride-hailing celllphone app Uber was introduced in Denmark and already that country's transport minister is saying the service will probably be banned.

It apparently violates Danish law.

Magnus Heunicke says the concept of car drivers acting as taxi chauffeurs and communicating with potential customers via a mobile application was "contrary... to what can be allowed in Denmark".

CLEAR REQUIREMENTS

Heunicke said on Thursday (Jan 22) he was not opposed to the concept but Denmark had "clear requirements" covering people's safety and employee training".

Uber has been banned in several countries and cities in Europe.
