Court of Appeals today refused to issue a stay order sought by the major cigarette company in the country Ceylon Tobacco Company to stop the government from labeling cigarette packets with graphic warnings.

 

The CTC filed the case challenging regulation made by the Minister of Health under the National Authority on Tobacco and Alcohol Authority Act.

 

According to the regulation, the pictorial health warning shall be printed on both sides of every Cigarette packet, package or carton containing Cigarette and shall cover at least an 80 percent of the total area of a packet, package or a carton.
