Hamadey v. Donetsk Tax Administration
Hamadey, a tobacco company, submitted a lawsuit against the Donetsk Tax Administration regarding their refusal to exchange old stamps of excise duty for tobacco products in return for new stamps. Hamadey argued that this was a violation of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine Resolution Act # 179, which allowed such a transfer to occur. The Tax Administration emphasized their lack of monetary resources to provide new stamps. The Court ruled in favor of Hamadey.
