BOGOTA, Jan 10 (Reuters) - Uber Technologies Inc UBER.N will stop operating in Colombia from the end of this month, following a court order late last year, the ride-hailing company said in a statement on Friday.

In December the Andean country ordered Uber to cease operations after a judge said it violated competition rules.

In the statement, Uber said the decision was "arbitrary" and violated the company's right to due process.
