Three Hong Kong employees of the ride-sharing app Uber have been released on bail after a raid on the firm’s office there saw documents and computers confiscated, South China Morning Post reported. Five drivers were also arrested when undercover police used the Uber app to hail five cars, then detained the drivers after being driven to their destinations. Hong Kong Police Senior Inspector Bruce Hung said the drivers lacked the required hire car permits or third party insurance. An Uber spokesperson said the firm “ensures that all rides are covered by insurance, and all drivers on the platform undergo an extensive background check.”
