Relationships between EU Commission and the tobacco industry have not been transparent enough. There’s nothing new under the sun, we already know the Maltese Commissioner John Dalli’s scandal who had to resign under Barroso’s Commission in 2012. Nowadays Emily O’Reilly, the European Ombudsman, conducted an inquiry and has found unclear meetings and relations between the Commission and the tobacco’s organizations.
