“Bribery part of GSK business plan”… (no surprises there then…)

A police investigation in China has found that drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline’s alleged bribery of doctors ‘was coordinated by the British company and was not the work of individual employees,’ according to a report Tuesday by Reuters.

GSK allegedly paid up to $490 million to doctors in China through 700 travel agencies in exchange for sales of drug products.

‘It is becoming clear that it is organized by GSK China rather than … sales people’s individual behavior,’ Reuters said, citing the official Xinhua news agency.
