British American Tobacco: corrupt practices behind the scenes at London-based multinational
SA's tobacco industry is going to be in the global headlines over the next few weeks, says BizNews founder Alec Hogg. Joining him to discuss the developments in this sector is Johan van Loggerenberg, an expert in the field. The former SARS employee has written four books on the tobacco wars and related topics. Also part of the discussion is Victoria Hollingsworth, a journalist at the UK-based Bureau for Investigative Journalist. Hollingsworth was tasked with investigating corruption within British American Tobacco. With the help of van Loggerenberg, Hollingsworth was able to uncover what the company has been doing in South Africa - and how much the head office in the UK knew about this.
