Week 45: 18th – 24th January 2021

  • TheResearch Unit on the Economics of Excisable Products (REEP) of University of Cape Townpublished a study report statingthat93% of their study participants were able to buy cigarettes on black market during the tobacco ban, thus, the ban led to a decline in the collective market shares ofBritish American Tobacco (BAT), Philip Morris International, Japan Tobacco International and Imperial Tobacco from 74% to 17%. REEP has published industry favourable research and survey reports since May 2020 though their website does not declare them as a lobby group.[35]
  • An Investigation done by Tax Justice South Africa (TJSA), a lobbying group on tax issues in terms of illicit trade, published a report stating that 2 out of every 3 cigarettes sold in South Africa are illicit.[35][36]Media reported that the TJSAallegations are fromsmall scale tobacco manufacturers and traders, who act as a front group for Big tobacco companies.[37]

When a tobacco trade or tax related policy is implemented, global evidence shows that tobacco industry commonly commissions research teams, think tanks and other lobby groups to generate reports in favour of the industry’s interests. Such pseudo-science is aimed at confusing policymakers and the public and interfering in effective tobacco control measures.
