The British multinational tobacco company has been accused of bribing foreign officials in order to conceal the constant violation of anti-smoking laws in a few African countries.
British American Tobacco could actually be punished for bribery, and now the supporters of tobacco control laws require the beginning of a full criminal trial.
Such negative news has had an immediate impact on the value of British American Tobacco, which already decreased by 1.32%. Further proceedings may affect the shares' price even more negatively. Traders have an excellent chance to earn money on a further decline. Remember, that trading will be available during the European session from 8:00 to 15:00 GMT time.
