Palm oil executives have been caught on camera admitting to bribery to be able to deforest an area of land. The company was also caught with the CEO describing a tax evasion scheme that they were running in India.

Despite having been filmed on camera saying such things, when contacted by Global witness and informed of the video, those responsible denied that it happened.

Senior politicians have admitted to corruption in similar areas over the last few years, but clearly, we are no where near solving this problem.
