EU High Court Verdicts in Dumping Cases on City Cycle and Chin Haur
BRUSSELS, Belgium – Earlier today the EU High Court in Luxembourg placed verdicts in two appeal cases on the anti-circumvention by transshipment operations of the anti-dumping duties for China made bicycles exported to the member states of the European Union. Bulgarian bike maker Maxcom Ltd, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission filed for the appeal against the Sri Lankan company City Cycle Industries and Chin Haur Indonesia.
On March 19, 2015 the Court of Justice of the European Union ruled that there was insufficient proof for the two companies carrying out transshipment operations. With that City Cycle and Chin Haur were no longer prone to paying costly fines as well as all costs for the lengthy and expensive legal procedures. These verdict has been appealed by Maxcom Ltd, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission.
Chin Haur involved in transshipment operations
Today’s verdict by EU High Court in Luxembourg rules that Chin Haur Indonesia has been involved in transshipment operations. Parties involved in this court case said that Chin Haur has been circumventing the 48.5% anti-dumping duty with completely knocked down bicycles it got from Fushida in China.
City Cycle Industries not circumventing
Also today, in a separate verdict the EU High Court in Luxembourg rules that City Cycle Industries was not engaged in circumventing the anti-dumping duties on China made bicycles which are exported to the EU via transshipment operations. This appeal by Maxcom Ltd, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission was ruled as ‘unfounded’.
