    Probe over kickbacks

    Three doctors in Shanghai and one in Hunan Province have been suspended pending investigations over kickbacks they allegedly took from pharmaceutical* firms.

    In an investigative report aired on Saturday, China Central Television showed pharmaceutical sales representatives paying sweeteners* to doctors at six hospitals in Shanghai and central Hunan Province. The report showed that doctors in six hospitals in Shanghai and Hunan Province took bribes from medicine sales representatives, who said the kickback amounted to about 30 to 45 percent of the medicines’ price.

    Taxes against pollution

    The National People’s Congress passed a law on Monday that will levy specific environmental protection taxes on industry for the first time from 2018, as part of a renewed focus on fighting the country’s pollution woes.

    The tax rate will be 1.2 yuan (US$0.17) per unit of atmospheric* pollution, 1.4 yuan per unit of water pollution, 5 yuan per ton of coal waste and 1,000 yuan per ton of “hazardous waste.”

    No charges for officers

    Beijing prosecutors have decided not to press charges against five law enforcement officers suspected of negligence* in a case in which a man choked to death after being taken into custody, saying the severity* of their actions was minor and all have shown remorse*.

    The Beijing People’s Procuratorate* said on Friday afternoon that prosecutors found the five officers, including two police officers and three auxiliary* officers, were suspected of “improper law enforcement” through the use of improper force. They said they were trying to take Lei Yang, a 29-year-old Beijing resident, into custody on May 7. But Lei died.

    Palace Museum annex

    A branch of Beijing’s Palace Museum, generally known as the Forbidden City, will open in Hong Kong in 2022, to give residents and tourists an opportunity to view some of China’s most treasured artifacts*.

    The museum will be built on an area of 10,000 square meters in West Kowloon Cultural District. Its exhibits are expected to include cultural relics featuring the Forbidden City’s history and imperial life.(SD-Agencies)
