Panama wins judgment on Colombian tariff

Wednesday, June 8, 2016

Panama won a judgment on Tuesday against Colombia's use of high import tariffs on textiles, clothes and shoes to tackle alleged money laundering.

The Appellate Body of the World Trade Organization WTO upheld an earlier ruling, saying Colombia's tariff was higher than allowed by WTO rules and was not necessary to combat money laundering.
