Executive Charged with Paying Corrupt Commissions to Coca-Cola

No Comment 305 Views

John Carter, the chief executive of Orix Australia, one of Australia’s largest fleet management companies, was charged with paying more than AUD $500,000 in corrupt commissions to an employee of Coca-Cola Amatil in order to secure vehicle leasing contracts.

Carter was arrested after Coca-Cola Amatil reported suspicious activity relating to its fleet of vehicles and New South Wales police launched an investigation in late 2014.

Police told Fairfax Media they believe the scandal is far wider, possibly involving millions of dollars and years of corruption, and they are urging people to come forward with information.

 

Two others involved in the fraud were arrested last week, including a senior Orix manager who delivered the payments and the Coca-Cola fleet manager who allegedly accepted them.
