In Asia, state media reports that Chinese prosecutors have formally filed charges against a Briton and his wife linked to the GlaxoSmithKline bribery claims.

Peter Humphrey and his wife Yu Ying Zeng, an American national, are charged with illegally obtaining private information, the Xinhua news agency said.

The pair were arrested in August 2013.

Humphrey’s company, ChinaWhys, was hired by GlaxoSmithKline China, which is embroiled in controversy over alleged systematic bribery of doctors.

Prosecutors say the couple compiled reports and sold them at high prices to their clients, most of which are China-based multinational corporations, including GSK China.

This is understood to relate to a sex tape said to have shown the general manager, Mark Reilly, who said the footage was filmed without his knowledge or consent.

The video was sent to GSK’s London-based CEO Andrew Witty with an email accusing Reilly of being behind systematic corruption in the company’s China operation.
