How Tobacco companies violate laws

Tobacco companies aggressively block, weaken, and undermine policies designed to protect public health and reduce tobacco use, and at times they have been found to work outside of countries’ laws. In multiple instances tobacco companies have been found to have violated the law.

British High Commissioner in Bangladesh Alison Blake allegedly lobbied to help BAT to avoid paying tax owed to Bangladesh. This is in breach of the requirement for transparency in both the FCTC and UK government guidelines.
