Tanzanian loses appeal to block EPA’s

The East African Court of Justice

Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | The East African Court of Justice has dismissed an appeal filed by Castro Pius, a Tanzanian national, seeking to block the East African Community from signing the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) with the European Union.

The Court said the appellant’s conduct in seeking to communicate to through the hotel is a disrespectful attitude and it amounts to the abuse to the Court process.

Castro had also sought the countries which had already penned their signatures to the agreement be stopped from carrying out any further procedures and processes.

The case was earlier dismissed by the First Instance Division of the Court last July which led to the applicant to file an appeal to the Appellate Division.

This comes at the time EAC countries are still in negotiation on whether or not to append their signatures on EPAs with the EU.
