Tobacco giant involved in smuggling in a dozen countries – report

04 Nov 2011

The report says when the allegations surfaced in 2009 and 2010, company management tried to block investigations by JTI’s anti-smuggling team.

“JTI retaliated last year by hacking into the team’s computers, firing its leaders, and phasing out nearly a dozen contractors who knew about the smuggling, according to former employees.”

According to a report by Reuters news agency, a JTI spokesman said Friday, “These matters have all been properly addressed and handled within JTI in line with our overall stance toward anti-illicit trade and my understanding is that it has been all solved or addressed.”
