PRIVATE IMPORT OF ALCOHOL

In the news: Online booze ban breaks EU law.

Sweden's ban on importing alcohol for private use breaks article 31 of the European Community Treaty, according to the Advocate General in the European Court.

The stance taken by the Advocate General, Antonio Tizzano, could have far-reaching consequences for Swedes' right to import alcohol from other EU countries. (TheLocal.se, 03/30/06.)
