* Ceylon Tobacco to carry out operations as usual until copy of full judgment received from court
Tue, May 13, 2014, 10:00 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

May 13, Colombo: Ceylon Tobacco Company, the Sri Lankan subsidiary of British American Tobacco, said today that it will carry out operations as usual until it receives a copy of the full judgment from court on graphic warnings delivered Monday, May 12.

Sri Lanka's Court of Appeal dismissed a writ application filed by CTC against government's legislation to include graphic warnings on smoking to cover 80 percent of the surface on cigarette packets.

The court however, reduced the coverage and allowed the government to cover 50-60 percent of the surface of the cigarette packet with pictorial warnings.

In a stock market disclosure the CTC said it has not received a copy of the court's full judgment which has read that the regulations should be amended reducing the size of the graphic health warning.

The company said it will make a further announcement once they received the copy of the full judgment from the Court of Appeal and until then the operations will be carried out as usual.
