A man who wrote fake reviews about Italian restaurants and hotels on the online travel site TripAdvisor has been jailed for nine months and ordered to pay an 8,000 euro ($9,300) fine, the company said on Wednesday.

TripAdvisor said in a statement that the sentence was handed down in June by a court in the southern Italian city of Lecce. There was no immediate confirmation from the court.
