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.
The National Committee for Tobacco Control filed a legal complaint alleging that the French subsidiary of Japan Tobacco International violated the criminal code, deliberately endangering lives by manipulating cigarette filters to conceal the real level of tar and nicotine in cigarettes. A preliminary investigation was opened.
