16-06-2018

The Czech Republic has achieved another victory in its international arbitration battle with the blood product company Diag Human, the Ministry of Health announced in a press release on Friday.

The Dutch Supreme Court has dismissed a complaint from the company over alleged damages amounting to around 13 billion crowns (approximately 500 million euros).

Diag Human has been conducting a drawn out series of legal actions against the Czech Republic over a blood plasma deal it sealed with the state in the early 1990s. It was already awarded 327 million crowns in 1997.
