Snam Rete Gas: The Lombardia Administrative Court declares the Sicilian tax on gas pipelines to be in contrast with the European Community provisions

Price sensitive

On December 20, 2002, the Lombardia Administrative Court declared the Sicilian tax on gas pipelines to be in contrast with the European Community provisions, and not applicable for tariff purposes, so confirming the resolution n. 120/02 taken by the Electricity and Gas Authority last July 3, 2002.

Today, the Board of Directors of Snam Rete Gas, on the basis of authoritative legal opinions and fiscal advices, resolved to suspend payments starting from the December 2002 instalment.

The applications for reimbursement of all sums paid to date, have already been filed with the Sicilian Regional Authorities.

The outcome of the proceeding before the Provincial Tax Court of Palermo is expected in the next few months.
