Tobacco rules voted by MEPs ‘big victory for industry’, says Dalli

Former European commissioner for health and consumer policy John Dalli said new tobacco laws approved by MEPs had had important parts "watered down", after MEPs voted on Tuesday to remove particular restrictions on the tobacco industry through the law he pioneered.

Dalli resigned his position on 16 October 2012 after being accused in an anti-fraud investigation by OLAF that he was aware of an associated attempting to solicit a bribe from snus producers Swedish Match, to remove an EU ban on the retail of the tobacco product. The ban had been retained in Dalli's proposed directive.
