     MIAMI, FL, February 13, 1996--Brooke Group Ltd. (NYSE: BGL) announced today
that the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina
ordered, over the objection of RJR Nabisco (NYSE: RN), that the depositions of
Steven F. Goldstone, chief executive officer, and Charles M. Harper, chairman of
RJR Nabisco, go forward immediately. RJR Nabisco had unilaterally tried to
cancel their depositions last Friday. The court denied RJR Nabisco's motion for
a stay of discovery. Brooke said that Mr. Goldstone's deposition would be taken
at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, February 14, and Mr. Harper's at 10:00 a.m. on
Thursday, February 15 at the offices of Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy in New

     The Federal Court also set an expedited hearing for February 21, 1996 to
determine whether RJR Nabisco may persist in its assertion of blanket
confidentiality with respect to the testimony given by John Greeniaus, president
of Nabisco (NYSE: NA). His testimony deals with the veracity of public
statements made by RJR Nabisco in connection with Brooke Group's consent
solicitation to immediately spin off the Nabisco food business to RJR Nabisco
shareholders and to rescind a by-law change. The Court's actions do not affect
the February 15, 1996 cutoff date for Brooke's consent solicitation.

     Brooke Group is a holding company which controls Liggett Group Inc.,
tobacco and real estate operations in the former Soviet Union and has a
substantial equity interest in New Valley Corporation.
