Serious Fraud Office investigating Glaxo's commercial practices
About the author: 

The UK's Serious Fraud Office is investigating the 'commercial practices' of drug giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK)

The UK's Serious Fraud Office is investigating the 'commercial practices' of drug giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).

Investigators have confirmed that it has started a criminal investigation, but has not given any details other than to suggest that the source was a whistleblower. "Whistleblowers are valuable sources of information to the SFO in its cases," a statement says.

GSK staff are already under investigation of bribing government and hospital officials in China, and similar investigations are also underway in Poland and Iraq. Polish whistleblower Jarek Wisniewiski, a former GSK sales rep, claimed last April that the company had paid doctors to promote its asthma drug, Seretide.
