Snus News - Corrupt EU-commissioner resigns

Snus News:
Good news when I woke up this morning.
EU commissioner John Dalli resigns after being accused of corruption. Apparently Swedish Match reported John Dalli to the EU commission this spring which lead to EU's own authority against bribery and fraud OLAF (Office Européen de Lutte Anti-Fraud) starting an investigation against him.
According to Expressen John Dalli tried to get Swedish Match to pay him through his friend, a businessman from Malta. In return he would help Swedish Match to get influence on the legislative proposals, and then especially the proposal regarding Swedish Snus.

According to the report from OLAF Swedish Match never payed the businessman any money but John Dalli was well aware that the contact between the Maltese businessman and Swedish Match was made.
The report from OLAF made John Dalli resign with immediate effect.

This gives new hopes for the EU snus ban to be removed! Finally someone might give snus a fair chance.
