  • UK executive accused in GlaxoSmithKline China probe

    Chinese police have accused a British GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) executive of ordering staff to bribe hospital officials to use its medical products.

    Mark Reilly and two other colleagues are also suspected of bribing government officials in Beijing and Shanghai, they said.
    Police have handed the case over to prosecutors, officials said.

    GSK said it took the allegations "very seriously" and would co-operate with the authorities over the matter.

    Chinese authorities announced in July last year that they were investigating GSK, detaining four Chinese GSK executives.

    U.S. 'concerned' about being barred from GSK-linked China trial

    The United States is worried that its officials have been barred from attending the Aug. 7 trial in China of British investigator Peter Humphrey and his American wife Yu Yingzeng after the couple were arrested last year following work they did for British drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline PLC.

    The concerns, voiced by the U.S. embassy in Beijing, adds a political dimension to the trial, which could become another thorny issue between the two economic powers, already tussling over areas ranging from cyber security and human rights to Chinese policy in the South China Sea.

      China deports British, American investigators linked to GSK scandal

      A British corporate sleuth and his American wife and business partner, both linked to a bribery scandal in China involving drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline PLC, were deported on Wednesday after their jail terms were reduced this month.

      Peter Humphrey and Yu Yingzeng left China at around midday (0400 GMT) on a Virgin Atlantic flight bound for London, the couple's son, Harvey Humphrey, said in a message to Reuters sent via a family friend.
