A manager at a Singaporean firm manufacturing Apple accessories has been accused of offering money to an Apple manager in exchange for confidential information, reports The Straits Times.
Andrew Ang, an employee of Jin Li Mould Manufacturing Pte. Ltd., helped his employer negotiate deals with Paul Shin Devine, Apple's global supply manager. Ang allegedly gave US$1 million (S$1.4 million) to Devine in exchange for information that would help Jin Li secure future contracts, says the Times.
Devine reportedly also gave confidential information to companies like Cresyn Co. Ltd. in South Korea and Kaedar Electronics Co. Ltd. in China.
