Apple Manager Under Indictment

Iphone 4Paul  Devine, who works as a manager for Apple, is facing criminal charges for taking kickbacks in a scheme that involved the suppliers of accessories for the popular  iPhone and iPad. Devine was indicted Friday for wire fraud, money laundering and taking kickbacks.

According to the charges, Devine accepted more than $1 million from the suppliers for confidential information he supplied. They then used the information to get better contracts with the company.

Company spokesman Steve Dowling pointed out the high ethical standards that Apple holds.  He said the company had a zero tolerance policy for dishonesty.

Singapore resident Andrew Ang was a supplier that was involved in the scheme and has been named in the indictment. There has been no comment as to his whereabouts. Devine is being held by federal marshals and will appear in court Monday.
