Turkey’s competition authority said on Monday it had launched an investigation into whether Internet search engine Google violated the competition law with algorithms it uses for searches and to target advertisements, Reuters reported.

The probe follows a complaint that Alphabet Inc’s Google unit had “abused its dominant position and made the efforts of other companies difficult,” the authority said.

The investigation will include companies Google Reklamcılık ve Pazarlama, Google International LLC, Google LLC, Google Ireland Limited and Alphabet Inc., it said.

In September, the authority fined Google some 93 million Turkish lira ($17.3 million) for violating the competition law with its mobile software sales.
