The East African Court of Justice (EACJ) has dismissed a petition seeking the reinstatement of an appeal of the case on the Economic Partnership Agreement between the regional bloc and European Union. A Tanzanian, Mr Castro Pius Shirima, filed the re-appeal on March 5 this year and hearing was scheduled for May 9. However, Mr Shirima or his lawyer failed to appear before the court, forcing the judges to throw out the petition for abuse of court processes.

CORRECTION

 

The article ''Fruit & vegetables from Cameroon suspended on EU market'' in Newsletter 565, (publication date: 07/05/2018) was incorrectly titled.

CTA Brussels was notified that no decision has been made about banning fruit and vegetables from Cameroon on the European market. Consequently, the original headline was corrected as follows ''Fruit & vegetables from Cameroon could face suspension on EU market'' to underline the hypothetical outcome of the situation.

We would like to apologize for any inconvenience this error may have caused.

Fruit & vegetables from Cameroon could face suspension on EU market

If nothing changes, fruit and vegetables from Cameroon could soon be banned from the European market, because of their questionable quality and in particular due to shortcomings in the national sanitary and phytosanitary monitoring systems. “Many elements required to meet international and European Union standards are currently missing from this system. There are significant weaknesses in its organisation and implementation, undermining its overall efficiency.
