In the standard theory we discuss a mechanism of interference between two different tree-level charged current amplitudes to induce CP violation. The asymmetry between conjugate Cabibbo disfavoured modes of charged bottom meson decays is considered. Estimates for two-body decays ofBu andBc are presented. We find thatBu−→D−+D0*, for instance, can give a big CP asymmetry with values ≈1–50%, depending on the angle and phase parameters.
