Jonckheere Case – no appeal for Eternit - 20/06/2017

Our Belgian company Eternit will not file an appeal before the Supreme Court in the case of Mrs. Vannoorbeeck, wife of former Eternit employee Mr. Jonckheere, for which the Court of Appeal of Brussels rendered a judgment on 28 March 2017.

Eternit does see a number of arguments in favour of an appeal before the Supreme Court. However, the company also believes that the principal of fair compensation, as laid down in the judgment of the Court of Appeal of Brussels, is in accordance with its own policy. Eternit has therefore decided not to appeal.
