GlaxoSmithKline accused of bribing doctors in Poland

The British drug company GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) can add Poland to countries where they have allegedly tried to bribe physicians to prescribe their products.  This is in addition to bribery incedence in China and Iraq.  GSK is currently being reviewed by the UK's Serious Fraud Office in regard to allegations that Doctors were being paid 100 pounds to make speeches regarding GSK products.  Instead of speeches it was understood that these physicians were simply writing scripts for the drugs.  Though GSK had claimed it looked into these claims and they were isolated and concerned a single employee, the BBC program "Panorama" uncovered additional employees and instances of bribery.  GSK has declined to explain the finding of "Panorama".
