Second investigator linked to GSK bribery scandal released from Chinese prison

Earlier this week, Chinese authorities released Peter Humphrey--a private eye linked to GlaxoSmithKline's ($GSK) 2013 bribery scandal--from local prison after a court reduced his sentence by about 7 months. And now, The Wall Street Journal reports that they've released his wife and partner Yu Yingzeng, too, cutting short her sentence by one month. After Glaxo hired the pair to help it track down the source of a clandestinely filmed sex tape involving the company's China head, prosecutors accused the two of breaching local laws around obtaining and selling personal information--something Humphrey said he didn't know he was doing at the time.
