The Ministry of Public Security had announced last week that GSK executives had confessed to bribery and tax violations in the course of the probe. Mr Feng added that they found instances of ‘sexual bribery' involving the company and ‘clues of illegal activities' by other companies, but did not elaborate on the either. The formal charges would be announced after the preliminary investigations are completed.
GSK has stressed that they have not found any evidence of bribery or corruption in China, clarifying that they would cooperate with the authorities in all ways.
