Escaping justice

 The Serious Fraud Office has dropped its investigation into British American Tobacco (BAT) over allegations it bribed government officials in Africa.  After more than three years investigating the cigarette giant, the SFO said it did not have enough evidence to support a realistic prospect of conviction. 

BAT was accused of bribing government officials from at least five African nations in an attempt to undermine a United Nations public health treaty, in breach of the UK Bribery Act.
