Turkey's competition authority opened an investigation on March 12 on claims that tech giant Google uses abusive tactics against rival companies.

The claim under investigation is that Google abused its dominant position in the market to highlight its local search services in a way that would exclude rival companies.

The investigation includes Turkish Google Reklamcılık ve Pazarlama Ltd., Google International LLC, Google LLC, Google Ireland Ltd., and Alphabet Inc., it added.
