WTO to rule on landmark tobacco case later on Thursday

GENEVA, June 28 (Reuters) - A World Trade Organization adjudication panel will rule on Thursday on a dispute over Australia's tough tobacco packaging rules, widely seen as a test case for public health legislation globally.

The WTO said the ruling in the case, brought against Australia by Honduras, the Dominican Republic, Cuba and Indonesia, would be published at around 1500 GMT. The ruling is expected to be appealed, the WTO's chief judge has said.
