Standard charge for short taxi rides?

Question

Yesterday I took a short taxi ride from Rue Anspach to Rue de la Regence. The taxi fare came to €6.50 but the driver insisted that as the journey was so short a standard charge of €10 would have to be paid. He insisted that this was the law. Can anyone tell me is this the case or have I been ripped off once again?

I'm afraid you've been ripped off.
Here is a normal tarif. In my opinion, taxi verts is reliable.

If you have a detail of the taxi which ripped you off, you could report.
