Tobacco industry is bullying African countries The Guardian The African market with its growing numbers of children and young people and its increasing wealth, represents a huge outlet for the giant tobacco industries. The "British American Tobacco (BAT)" is attempting to capture this market by all means and is not afraid fighting through the African courts in order to avert protections and laws that prevent the population from the harm (and killing) consequences of smoking. Laws that have long been standard in rich countries. The Guardian got undisclosed court documents which reveale these aggressive and intimidatory tactics that tobacco companies are using.
