No proven case that I know of, but it might have happened once or twice.

Genocide!? I really don't understand it, whenever somebody wants to show how
evil corporations are, they always come up with a long list of rotten things that
governments do. Granted, few companies actively opposed these monstrous
regimes, but that's not quite the same thing as instigating it, and anyway can
you really blame them for not playing the hero, in most cases it would be
economic if not actual suicide.

Other corporate gangs of course, although I'm sure they'd use a more pleasant name.

Glad to hear it, I am saying government is inherently bad.
