COLTABACO S.A. (PMI) v. Coljuegos

Coljuegos, an administrative authority in charge of promotional games in Colombia, prohibited COLTABACO S.A., a Philip Morris International affiliated company, to continue using promotional strategies, such as raffles, at the point of sale, applying the general advertisement, promotion and sponsorship ban established by Law 1335 of 2009. This decision cites the Constitutional Court precedent (Caceres Corrales v. Colombia) and holds that the FCTC Guidelines should be considered subsequent agreements under the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties.
