Five people have been indicted in the US on federal charges of conspiring to steal trade secrets from pharmaceuticals conglomerate GlaxoSmithKline and provide them to firms operating in China, The Wall Street Journal reported. The indictment alleges that a protein biochemist who only stopped working for the firm in January had used her Glaxo email account to send trade secrets and confidential information on a dozen or more products to her personal email account, which she then used to forward the information to others. She and two of the other people indicted had also founded a US firm and two related drug companies in China.
