Six ex-Insys executives arrested in U.S. in fentanyl bribe case

Dec 8 (Reuters) - Six former Insys Therapeutics Inc executives and managers were arrested on Thursday on charges that they engaged in a nationwide scheme to bribe doctors to prescribe a drug containing the opioid fentanyl, U.S. prosecutors said.

Michael Babich, the former CEO of the Arizona-based drug maker, was among five individuals charged in an indictment filed in federal court in Boston in the latest case to spill out of probes involving Insys' drug Subsys.
