ANKARA (Reuters) – The Turkish competition authority said on Monday that it imposed a fine of around 482 million lira ($14.85 million) on Google over its failure to fulfill obligations related to hotel searches.

The authority said the fine was imposed over Google’s failure to address the competition board’s concerns over fair competition with other local search engines.
