Apple seems to have found at least one mole in their operations who leaked product information to suppliers.
Not much information has been revealed. But it is said that he received kickbacks for revealing information about upcoming company products.
Paul Shin Devine worked as a global supply manager at Apple. He has now been accused of accepting kickbacks from six Asian companies.
Apple has not revealed the names of the companies. These are said to be based in South Korea, China, Taiwan and Singapore.
The company said: “Apple is committed to the highest ethical standards in the way we do business. We have zero tolerance for dishonest behavior inside or outside the company.”
