Philip Morris sues Uruguay over anti tobacco legislation

Wed 25th May, 2011

Uruguay is being taken to court by Philip Morris International amid claims that the country's anti-smoking policies are damaging the tobacco company commercially.

PMI has filed the claim at the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) because it says that Uruguay has violated a treaty for the promotion and protection of investments.
