GREAT BRITAIN (WIAT) — A drug maker in Great Britain is accused of using travel agencies and consultants to illegally boost the drug prices in China.

According to police, GlaxoSmithKline used the companies to bribe doctors to raise the prices.

Authorities say GSK executives in China confessed to bribery and tax violations during one of a string of investigations into foreign firms last week.

Four Chinese executives have been detained in connection with the case.

Formal charges will not be announced until a preliminary investigation is complete.
