CBB overturns judgment of District Court Rotterdam

In 2004 the Minister of Health, Welfare and Sports imposed a fine on Ritmeester for infringement of the Tobacco Act, more specifically the ban on tobacco advertising. The District Court rejected the pleas to have the contested decision annulled. In appeal the Trade en Industry Appeals Tribunal (CBB) awarded the arguments brought forward by Ritmeester and reduced the fine considerably.
