Graphic warnings reduced in size

| May 13, 2014

A Sri Lankan court yesterday dismissed a challenge filed by the country’s leading tobacco products manufacturer against the government’s requirement for the inclusion of graphic warnings on cigarette packs, according to a story on Colombo Page.

However, the court reduced the size of the warnings from 80 percent to 50–60 percent.

The Court of Appeal dismissed the petition filed by Ceylon Tobacco Company challenging the government’s special gazette notification of Aug. 8, 2012, requiring the warnings.
