| < 1 minute read
An Indian court has recently summoned Alibaba Founder Jack Ma on a former employee’s complaint against Alibaba. The case claims that the Indian employee was wrongfully fired after objecting to what he saw as censorship and fake news on company apps, and documents.
This case comes weeks after the Indian government cited security concerns and banning UC News, UC Browser of Alibaba, along with 57 other Chinese mobile apps. China had criticized this strict move – however, India has sought written answers to all the affected companies. This includes whether they censored content and have acted for any foreign government.
UC India said in a statement it had been “unwavering in its commitment to the Indian market and the welfare of its local employees, and its policies are in compliance with local laws. We are unable to comment on ongoing litigation”.
