Former European Commissioner John Dalli has filed an appeal in the European Court of Justice after the European Court rejected his claim of unfair dismissal from the European Commission.

The court had concluded that Mr Dalli resigned voluntarily at a meeting with President Barroso on October 16, 2012.

It found that on October 16, 2012 a meeting took place between Mr Barroso and Mr Dalli following the conclusion of an OLAF report concluding that the then Commissioner had on several occasions been in contact with representatives of the tobacco industry in unofficial and confidential meetings.

It concluded that Mr Dalli resigned orally during the meeting with Mr Barroso.
