PARIS (Reuters) – LafargeHolcim <LHN.S> has taken note of a French appeal court decision to drop the charge of complicity in crimes against humanity brought against Lafarge SA over its operations in Syria, the Swiss cement maker said on Thursday.

“LafargeHolcim deeply regrets the unacceptable errors committed in Syria”, the company said in a statement, adding it “continues to cooperate fully with the French judicial authorities”.

The French company is still facing charges of financing of terrorists, endangerment of people’s lives and violation of sanctions, Lafarge Holcim added, confirming an earlier report by Reuters.
