Several employees, including a foreign finance executive, were seized from the company’s Shanghai office last week. Changsha police say they are investigating several senior executives from GlaxoSmithKline Investment in Changsha for economic crimes. GSK has launched an internal investigation into allegations that its employees bribed doctors.
