Moscow Prosecutor's Office has started checking Wheely
Earlier, the press service of the Department of Transport reported that this premium taxi service did not comply with the requirements of the mayor's decree and did not provide information on the movement of their cars.
The Moscow City Prosecutor's Office will check the premium Wheely taxi service for the compliance with sanitary and epidemiological requirements.
“The Moscow City Prosecutor's Office will check compliance with the requirements of the legislation on sanitary-epidemiological well-being of the population by one of the capital taxi services", - told TASS Lyudmila Nefedova, Head of the press service of the capital Prosecutor's Office. She has also specified that this audit is carried out on the appeal of the capital Department of Transport.
She had noted that, during the audit, they will access the actions of the organization officials on the fulfillment of anti-epidemic measures and requirements of the introduced regime of high readiness. “Based on the results, measures of prosecutor's response will be taken if there are any reasons” said the representative of the Prosecutor's Office.
According to the press service of the Department of Transport, Wheely service hasn’t yet fulfilled the requirements of the mayor's decree and hasn’t provided information on the movement of its cars (unlike other market participants: Yandex.Taxi, Citymobil and Gett, which comply with the existing requirements).
During the pandemic, the drivers are required by the Rospotrebnadzor to report regularly on the sanitary condition of their cars. The Department of Transport believes that the failure to comply with the Mayor's decree is a direct threat to the health and safety of citizens. Wheely service had violated the mayor's order and began the trips of premium cars without the approval of the Department of Transport.
