We have previously written about the extraordinary lengths bureaucrats meeting in Delhi have gone to to suppress observers from reporting on their shady dealings to regulate life-saving tobacco alternatives.
From throwing journalists and observers from the room, to even blocking media outlets on Twitter, there is little doubt that there is a deliberate and concerted effort to ensure that the taxpayers paying for this conference have no chance to learn what is going on.
However we have just received reports that the situation has become even worse - to the point of farce.
We have unconfirmed reports that the Conference Secretariat deliberately withholding documents from coutnry delegations who do not agree with banning these life saving technologies
Just think about this for a minute. If confirmed, this represents an absolutely extrodinary new level of exclusion and intimidation by the international bureaucratic elite who are determined to push through an outcome against the wishes of many countries (not to mention taxpayers).
We are monitoring the situation, and shall update as soon as we have further information
