A British investigator linked to a bribery scandal in China involving drug maker GlaxoSmithKline has been released early from prison.
Peter Humphrey and his American wife, Yu Yingzeng, were sentenced to two and a half years in a Chinese jail in August last year for illegally obtaining private records of Chinese citizens and selling the information on to clients including GSK.
Humphrey was told by a Shanghai court on Tuesday that his sentence would be reduced by seven months, Reuters reported. He had originally been expected to be released in January next year.
