Singapore: Mr Huang Fengping, deputy director of the Shanghai Municipal Commission of Health and Family Planning has reportedly been suspended following an investigation into his alleged involvement in GSK China corruption scandal.
Sources have claimed that Huang was involved in the GSK bribery scandal via the Huashan Hospital and that one of his close relatives also works for the British pharmaceutical giant in the country.
Mr Huang, a well-known expert in neurosurgery, was previously vice president of the Huashan Hospital affiliated to the Fudan University in Shanghai. Sources have added in reports that Huang was taken away by related investigators in mid-September, and was recently taken back to Shanghai.
His position within the commission had already been taken down from its official website, while a commission spokesman declined to comment further on Huang and the ongoing case against him, news reports added.
