LAUSANNE, Switzerland - Thursday, May 19th 2016 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Philip Morris International (NYSE/Euronext Paris: PM) today comments on an English Court’s decision to uphold the UK’s plain packaging regulations.

In May 2015, PMI and other companies sought a ruling on whether those regulations, which make it illegal to use registered trademarks, were a proportionate public health measure and compliant with English law.

Marc Firestone, Senior Vice President and General Counsel of PMI, said:

“We are certainly disappointed but understand that the English Court ultimately deferred to the Parliament’s judgment about cigarette packaging. Inexplicably, however, the Court’s reasoning relies heavily on a 2006 decision by a judge in the United States in a case about US law to which PMI was not even a party, and did not concern plain packaging.

In conflict with basic rules of procedure, the Court relied on tha ... Read more »

Stressing the importance of Monitoring Children and Protecting them from Bad Company

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates - Monday, May 16th 2016 [ME NewsWire]

The National Rehabilitation Center (NRC) urged families to closely monitor their children’s behaviors, keep them on track with their academic work and protect them from the dangers of drug abuse.

Dr. Ali Al Marzouqi, Director of the Public Health and Research Department at the NRC, warned parents of the seriousness of drugs, as drug abuse is not something that is simply ‘unlikely,’ but rather something that is possible, and parents are often surprised to find out that their children are drug addicted. “The NRC has dealt with many cases of parents that were shocked when they knew that their children were using drugs,” he said.

Dr. Al Marzouqi also underscored the importance of prevention and care when monitoring children for the early signs of drug abuse and addiction, t ... Read more »
