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.

In Uganda, British American Tobacco allegedly held an unlawful and secret meeting with Ugandan MPs over a proposed Tobacco Control Bill. Such a meeting would be a breach of the WHO framework on Tobacco Control, Article 5.3.
