Witty Witty Bang Wang. The Glaxo Gangbang...Allegedly
More on the GSK Chinagate scandal. The telegraph are reporting that Chinese authorities have released more details regarding the fraudulent behaviour of the company that wants us all to live longer and feel better.
It's alleged that Glaxo reps were trained to offer sexual services to Dr's in an effort to get them to prescribe more drugs. How does one train a rep to prostitute themselves?
The Telegraph claim that China’s official news wire, Xinhua, "quoted a 35-year-old female “medical representative” who reportedly worked for a GSK regional sales manager named only as Mr Li.
"The woman, named as Ms Wang, said “some executives gave clear directives to the sales department to offer bribes to doctors with money or opportunities to attend academic conferences.”
"Ms Wang said she would even go so far as fulfilling some doctors’ “sexual desires” in order to “meet their needs” and persuade them to prescribe more drugs."
I wonder how that visit went?
Wang: If you prescribe more I will give you money
Dr: No thanks, that's corrupt.
Wang unbuttons her blouse to reveal her cleavage, "then maybe we could come to some 'other' arrangement"?
This has got me thinking. There's some porn director out there right now being paid to write and direct. All they need do is follow this Chinese story.
In other news, Chinese authorities have arrested a further 18 Glaxo employees, this on the back of the four Glaxo employees who were previously arrested by Chinese officials. No names have been released and both the authorities and Glaxo are remaining tight lipped.
Here's the Wang article.
