(RTTNews) - Specialty pharmaceutical company Indivior Plc (INDV.L) said its former Chief Executive Officer Shaun Thaxter was sentenced in United States Federal Court on Thursday after pleading guilty to one misdemeanor count under the Responsible Corporate Officer Doctrine. The company noted that the plea agreement between Thaxter and the U. S. Department of Justice is in his personal capacity and not on behalf of Indivior. The separate agreement between the company and the government that was announced on July 24 remains unchanged and is subject to approval by a federal judge at a hearing currently scheduled for November 12. According to the company, "the incident to which the agreement relates occurred well in the past and does not reflect the values Indivior has strived to demonstrate during its long history of fighting the opioid crisis."

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden went head-to-head in the final presidential debate on Thursday (Oct 22), making their case on why Americans should vote for them with just under two weeks to go to Election Day. Here are some highlights from the debate. 1. Coronavirus: As different as night and day The debate highlighted stark differences in both men's views of the Covid-19 situation in the United States, which is experiencing what some are describing as a third surge in cases, this time focused in the Midwest. The audience was left to weigh whether they thought Mr Trump had a plan, decide whose prediction of the future they found more sensible, and choose whether to find Mr Trump responsible for America's 220,000 coronavirus deaths so far. Mr Trump made a rosy prediction that the virus "will go away" and that the US is "rounding the turn", asserting that the vaccine could be just weeks away - a claim he has been making for weeks. In contrast, Mr Biden warned that America was about to enter a "dark winter", echoing earlier warnings by public health experts and officials.
