Former GC for Tobacco Firm Questioned Over Destroyed Documents

Roger Ackman, the former general counsel for Imperial Tobacco from 1972 to 1999 is now a trial witness and is battling allegations that he destroyed company documents on the risks of smoking.

He is testifying in the Superior Court in Montreal. Ackman wanted to avoid testifying but finally had to because he was the general counsel during the time those documents were allegedly destroyed. Ackman insists that the documents he destroyed were only copies with the originals still available in the company's offices. Ackman's testimony is part of the class action trial going on against Imperial Tobacco and at $27 billion, is the largest in Canadian history.
