Peter Humphreys in the news

Peter Humphrey 1967-73 PGS wrote to us in 2010 with his news from China - see here

Is this the same Peter who has been in the news over the last few days ? Here is the video from China as well as a newspaper clipping.

An apparent confession made by a British corporate investigator and his American wife arrested as part of a clampdown on the trade in information in China has been broadcast on state television.
Peter Humphrey and Yingzeng Yu, a married couple, reportedly appeared on China's central broadcaster CNTV admitting to illegally gathering personal information on individuals in China.
The couple are part of an industry of investigators who help corporate clients screen potential partners and employees or watch for embezzlement and other employee misconduct.

According to The Times, they appeared on television in handcuffs and wearing orange vests, with their faces blurred, after police announced the arrest of the two corporate investigators who work in Shanghai, on charges of improperly selling personal information about Chinese citizens.
In the broadcast Humphrey says: 'To obtain this information, I sometimes used illegal means. 
'I want to apologize to the Chinese government.'
