A British citizen and his American wife have been accused by Chinese authorities of illegally buying and selling private information, Reuters reported, citing state media. On Tuesday, police investigator Lu Wei told CCTV the couple “wantonly” obtained a lot of information on home registrations, international travel and property records. They sold the information to lawyers, multinational companies and financial institutions, CCTV said. Peter Humphrey and his wife Yu Yingzeng were detained in Shanghai on July 10 as police investigated bribery accusations against British drug maker GlaxoSmithKline (GSK.NYSE, GSK.LON).
