Prosecutors have indicted a former chief executive of the South Korean unit of Novartis and five other former and current company managers over allegations that they illegally paid doctors 2.6 billion won ($2.3 million) in return for prescribing the company's drugs.
In response, the Swiss pharmaceutical company expressed regret through a statement this week, but also said without elaborating that such conduct would not have been sanctioned by the "most senior management" at Novartis Korea.

"Novartis does not tolerate misconduct and we are already implementing a remediation plan in Korea based on the findings from our own investigation," the Basel-based company said.

Paul Barrett, an official from Novartis International, said Saturday that the company could provide no other details on the case before the trial proceedings.

South Korean laws ban drug companies from providing doctors rebates or discounts for the drugs they prescribe. According to the prosecution, Novartis' South Korean associates, including former Novartis Korea chief executive Moon Hak-sun, tried to go around the laws by funding academic events organized by publishers of medical journals, where the invited doctors allegedly received kickbacks disguised as attendance fees.

Novartis did not identify the other former and current executives charged and did not provide any contact details for Moon or his attorney.

Moon served as chief executive of Novartis Korea before he agreed to take a temporary leave of absence in April, Barrett said.
The Seoul Western District Prosecutors' Office said it also indicted 28 other people, including 15 doctors and six publishers of medical journals, over their suspected involvement in transactions that took place between 2011 and January this year. None of the suspects has been arrested.

诺华公司韩国高管被控贿赂医生

检察官起诉诺华制药韩国公司的前行政长官及其他五名前任和现任经理,指控他们非法支付医生 26 亿韩元 (230 万美元)作为开该公司的药物回报。

对此,瑞士制药公司表示遗憾,本周通过一份没有详细说明的声明表示这样的行为将不会受到在韩国的“最高级管理”的认可。

“公司不容忍不当行为,我们已经从我们自己的调查结果上对于此次韩国发生的事件实施了一项整治计划”设在巴塞尔的公司总部说。

来自国际公司的一位官员保罗•巴列特周六说,该公司在庭审前没有提供任何其他细节。

韩国的法律禁止药物公司因医生开的药而为医生提供回扣或折扣。根据起诉,诺华公司的韩国员工,包括韩国前诺华首席执行官Moon Hak-sun,试图通过资助医学期刊发行商举办的学术活动来绕过法律织,拉拢医生涉嫌收受回扣伪装成参会费用。

诺华公司没有确定其他前任和现任高管收取回扣,也没有为Moon或他的律师提供任何联系细节。

巴雷特说,Moon此前曾担任诺华韩国公司首席执行官,他同意在四月采取临时休假。

首尔西部区检察官办公室说,他们还起诉了28人,其中包括15名医生和6名医学期刊的出版商,他们在2011至今年1月之间涉嫌参与交易。目前没有一个嫌疑犯被逮捕。
