Where peoples involved PMP's?
You need to apply the PMI PMP code of ethics, if you have a PMI certification.
Some of the peoples involved might be part of a professional title, that have also code of ethics. Did they apply it?

PMI´s Code of Ethics has no sense when you work into a company which has its own code of ethics and insde a country which has its own system of laws. Why? Because PMI´s Code of Ethics is not legally actionable. That is not the same with other codes of ethics that you can find in medicine or other professions that are formal professions. The PMI´s Code of Ethics has been created to fulfill a requirement to create a certification that is recognized by the USA Committee of Certifications. On the other side, ethics is beyond codes. As @Sante said, is an individual matter.

All-
It is a pleasure to see the elder statesmen of PMI contributing to this discussion.
In my opinion, The PMI Code of Ethics is a very simple baseline requirement for members.
The COE is not a Moral Guide. In my experience, each Individual needs to decide what their Construction Industry Moral Code will be and follow that Code. Morality cannot be taught, legislated, or dictated. Your Mother (and possibly your Religion) taught you what is right and wrong in this world, and you know the difference.
It will always be the case that people with a weak moral code will take advantage of others. They will always exist in Society, Governments, and Contracting companies where Money is the sole means of success and power.
You need to decide as a professional when to say no! or respectfully decline to participate.
The Odebrecht's corruption practices are found in every Industry and in every part of the World....

This is just my opinion!

As Mark points out, nobody has a monopoly on ethics breaches. Just look at the recent surge in sexual harassment charges across different media.

By and large, code of ethics are simply common sense. The question becomes: whose common sense?.
