China arrests two foreign fraud investigators, say diplomats
SHANGHAI (AFP) - China has formally arrested a foreign husband-and-wife team of fraud investigators, diplomats said on Thursday, whose firm did work for British pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline which is facing a bribery probe.
Police in China's commercial hub Shanghai had arrested Peter Humphrey, a British national, and Yu Yingzeng, a naturalised American citizen, diplomats from the two countries told AFP.
Humphrey is the founder of risk advisory firm ChinaWhys while Yu, a certified fraud examiner, served as general manager.
Diplomats declined to describe the charges.
