The Supreme Court in a majority decision today issued an interim order staying Health Ministry’s regulation to display pictorial warnings on cigarette packets.

The stay order, sought by the Ceylon Tobacco Company to quash the Gazette for pictorial warnings, was initially refused by the Court of Appeals in February this year.
 
The appeal was filed by the CTC against the Health Ministry directive requiring 80 percent space in every single cigarette packet allocated to display both printed and pictorial health warnings about the health hazards of smoking.
