05:42 EDTPMPhilip Morris files papers seeking review of EU tobacco directive
Subsidiaries of Philip Morris filed papers seeking review of the EUís Tobacco Products Directive by the Court of Justice of the European Union. Commenting on the matter, Marc Firestone, Senior Vice President and General Counsel of Philip Morris International, said: "We believe that the EUís Tobacco Products Directive disrupts the balance that the EU treaties establish between the Union and the Member States. The Directive claims to improve the internal market in tobacco products, but its provisions go in the opposite direction. The Directive includes a mix of product bans, mandates, and delegations of authority that raise serious questions under the EU Treaties about consumer choice, the free movement of goods, and competition. There is no disagreement that there should be strict regulation of tobacco products, but measures need to make sense and, above all, honor the EU treaties. We very much hope that this matter is referred to the EUís highest court for a careful, objective review."
