UK's Prescription Medicines Code of Practice Authority (PMCPA): Anonymous vs Otsuka (Versión PharmaGuy)
Male Otsuka UK Marketing Executive's Behavior Worse Than Bill Cosby's: Has Women Subordinates Provide Drinks to Intoxicated Female HCP
According to the UK's Prescription Medicines Code of Practice Authority (PMCPA), which oversees the self-regulatory code of the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI), "An anonymous, non-contactable complainant alleged that a male employee of Otsuka Pharmaceuticals (UK) behaved inappropriately and provided inappropriate hospitality following a dinner at a meeting partly funded by the pharmaceutical industry.
"The complainant stated that he/she went from the private function area at a hotel where dinner had been held to the public hotel bar and noticed three Otsuka employees. Descriptions were provided. A female health professional, who the complainant remembered as being very drunk at the dinner, subsequently entered the bar and started talking to the Otsuka employees. Although she was obviously intoxicated a male Otsuka employee continued to ply her with drinks; his two female colleagues seemed unhappy with this" (see "AUTH/2752/3/15 - Anonymous v Otsuka").
Otsuka did not deny that the senior employee spoke to a woman in the public bar nor that "she was flirtatious and tactile." [You gotta love the pharma industry! It has no problems talking about erections on TV, but sexual encounters in real life must be described in clinical terms such as "tactile."]
The document goes on to describe in some detail what happened that night, which sounds like something straight out of a True Romance comic.
Here's my graphic depiction of the suave style of the Otsuka executive:
You won't believe what happened next.
"During the evening the body language between the male and the health professional became more intimate and flirtatious," says the PMCPA account. "Eventually after a number of drinks having being bought by the male in question for the female health professional they left the bar within minutes of each other."
