Those "good corporate citizens" at British American Tobacco (owner of Imperial Tobacco, purveyors of Player's, Matinee, and Du Maurier) bribed a corrupt dictator. Here's the story from BBC: British American Tobacco negotiated bribe for Mugabe, new evidence suggests

Excerpt: "Documents show British American Tobacco (BAT) was involved in negotiations to pay between $300,000 and $500,000 to Mugabe's Zanu-PF party in 2013.

"The documents also reveal BAT was paying bribes in South Africa and using illegal surveillance to damage rivals.

"BAT says it is committed to the highest standards of corporate conduct."
