The EU alleges that Google gets its own wicked way by blocking competitors and unfairly promoting its own shopping and services.
The case, according to Reuters, has been dragging on for six years when Microsoft, playing the part of a pot calling a kettle black, complained about Google’s behaviour.
Since then, EU officials have added several more sins to the charge sheet, including fresh allegations this year.
If the EU antitrust authorities find against Google, they have the power to impose swingeing fines.
But Google top lawyer Kent Walker said that his company was innocent of all such charges, and was only prompted by the needs of people who use its services.
Walker also dragged Amazon, Facebook and Pinterest into the case.
