FITA Statement – For immediate release
We understand the frustrations of the many people who have supported us during our challenging of the #CigaretteBan in relation to judgment in this matter.
Let us all be mindful of the fact that the record in this matter is approximately 6000 pages long and the court has to apply its mind taking this and many other factors into consideration.
We further wish to dismiss any allegations that we are involved in ANY discussions whatsoever with government in relation to this matter, and in fact we look forward to receiving judgment in this matter.
We will update the public as soon as we have any feedback from the court in as far as the judgment in relation to this matter is concerned.
We again wish to thank all of you for your continued support.
