Foxconn Former Executive Wanted Over Bribes, Next Magazine Says

Jan. 30 (Bloomberg) -- A former Foxconn Technology Group human resources executive is wanted by the Chinese police for allegedly soliciting and taking bribes from migrant workers, Taipei-based Next Magazine reported.

Assets of the former Foxconn executive for human resources are frozen by Chinese authorities, Next Magazine reported, citing people familiar with the issue who weren’t identified. The executive solicited a 100 yuan ($16) bribe from every migrant seeking a job with the company, according to the report.

Another former Foxconn employee was detained Jan. 28, in an investigation of bribes payments from suppliers, Huang Mou-hsin, deputy chief prosecutor of the Taipei District Prosecutors Office said by phone this month. The Taipei-based maker of Apple Inc.’s iPhones and iPads said last week it is cooperating in the probe conducted by Taiwanese authorities.

Simon Hsing, a spokesman for Foxconn, declined to comment on specific cases when reached by telephone. Foxconn alerted the authorities in China and Taiwan to possible violations of law and the company has been working with those authorities, Foxconn said in an e-mailed statement sent today.

The Ministry of Public Security could not be reached after work hours by telephone.
