Use money for NDZ's tobacco ban appeal to tackle illegal cigarette boom - BATSA
Mar 02, 2021 1 min, 0 secs

British American Tobacco SA (BATSA) is "disappointed, but not surprised", that Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has been granted leave to appeal the Western Cape High Court's ruling that the lockdown ban on tobacco sales was unconstitutional and invalid.

"Based on the strength of the High Court's findings, we are confident that the Supreme Court of Appeal [SCA] will uphold the Western Cape judgment and rule in our favour." .

In the view of BATSA, regardless of the outcome of the minister's appeal, the Western Cape High Court's rulings related to constitutional arguments by BATSA will still stand.

"The Western Cape Court ruled that the tobacco ban infringed the rights to privacy, dignity, bodily and psychological integrity, property and freedom to trade, and that those infringements were not reasonable or justified," states BATSA.

Government hopes the SCA would clear up what it regards as conflicts between certain aspects of the successful BATSA case and an unsuccessful challenge by the Fair Trade Independent Tobacco Association (Fita) against the tobacco ban in the Gauteng High Court.
