In August of this year, five of HTC's employees including several top executives were arrested for leaking company info to third party competitors. This troupe of "alleged" wrong-doers included R&D director Wu Hung, senior manager Justin Huang, and VP of Product Design Thomas Chien. All of them were just indicted for fraud and more. As it turns out, not only had Chien and his crew leaked HTC design secrets to a company that Chien was planning on working for after leaving HTC, they also raked in around NT$33,566,000 (USD $1.12 million), by filing false expense claims and getting undocumented rebates from a supplier.
Another truly mind-boggling detail about this case is that about a quarter of this embezzled money was stashed in Chien's Audi, as another quarter was confiscated from him earlier. Most of the other perps have already confessed to the wrong-doing, but Chien remains defiant and refuses to admit any wrongdoing. These indictments could send Chien and his team to prison for up to 10 years.
