Tobacco titan faces EU case

Brussels, Oct. 31 (Reuters): The European Commission said today it had filed a civil lawsuit in a US court against cigarette maker R.J. Reynolds, accusing the firm of money-laundering.

The European Union’s executive arm said it would “seek compensation for economic and other losses”.

It declined to say how much money it was seeking, but EU officials said the damage amounted to “hundreds of millions of euros”.
