AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Uber has paid around 2.3 million euros ($2.6 million) in a settlement after it was found to have offered an unlicensed taxi service in the Netherlands in 2014-2015, Dutch prosecutors said on Friday.

The settlement over Uber’s “UberPop” service – in which people with no taxi license transport passengers in their own cars and use Uber software to find customers and handle payments – included both a fine and giving back revenue earned from the service in the Netherlands.
