China details charges against foreign fraud investigators
SHANGHAI (AFP) - Chinese state television put two foreign fraud investigators on display on Tuesday as police announced they had been charged with illegally obtaining personal information.
Police in Shanghai arrested British national Peter Humphrey and his wife Yu Yingzeng, an American citizen, the Ministry of Public Security said in a statement.
They are accused of obtaining personal information and selling reports for "high prices" to clients, it added.
The statement did not mention work their firm did for GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), following speculation their detention might be related to the British pharmaceutical giant, which is facing a bribery investigation in China.
