Prosecutors in China Charge Investigators Linked to GSK for Illegally Obtaining Data
In the recent years China has made arrangements to make its privacy laws stricter. The country amended its criminal policy to forbid the transfer, sale or gathering of information of any Chinese citizens by the government firms and companies who are involved in telecom business, education transportation and medical treatment, in 2009.
On Friday the Chinese prosecutors charged a British investigator Peter Humphrey and his American wife Yu Yingzeng for illegally getting private information of Chinese citizens in a case which is mainly seen as string to an investigation related to bribery which is going on against GlaxoSmithKline Plc. (GSK)
The couple has a risk consultancy called ChinaWhys, which was working under a contract with GSK, the British manufacturer of drugs. The couple was arrested one year back and the event of their arrest matched with a probe run by the Chinese authorities who looked into allegations which said that GSK staff had channelized hundreds of millions of pounds to bribe the local Chinese doctors along with other health officials through travel agencies to increase level of sales and also to increase prices.
