As per news report of BBC, they detail the extensive help Uber got from leaders such as Emmanuel Macron and ex-EU commissioner Neelie Kroes. They also show how the taxi firm's former boss personally ordered the use of a "kill switch" to prevent raiding police from accessing computers. Uber says its "past behaviour wasn't in line with present values" and it is a "different company" today.
