Peter Löscher, who took over as Siemens CEO some six months ago, is driving the investigation. Recently, Siemens employees have been speaking out and blaming certain managers. But there is evidence suggesting that executives, including Klaus Kleinfeld and Heinrich von Pierer, were involved.

The Department of Justice announced Tuesday that college basketball coaches at University of Arizona, Auburn, University of Southern California, and Oklahoma State University had been arrested, as well as managers, financial advisors, and representatives of a major international sportswear company. Jim Gatto, director of global sports marketing for basketball at Adidas, was also named as a defendant. According to the complaint, Gatto allegedly conspired with coaches to pay high school athletes to play at universities sponsored by Adidas (referred to as "Company 1" in the case). The investigation, which was been in progress since 2015, has been led by the FBI and the US Attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York. Three separate complaints have been filed. Gatto and four other defendants have been charged with "making and concealing bribe payments" to high school student athletes and/or their families. In one instance, Gatto and the other defendants reportedly funneled $100,000 to the family of a high school basketball player to convince the player to sign with a "public research university" in Kentucky. According to an undercover agent investigating the case, Gatto told other defendants that the payment was "on the books" at Adidas, but "not on the books for what it's actually for." The complaint doesn't name the university. Based on details provided, it is likely the University of Louisville, which signed a $160 million sponsorship deal with Adidas in August. In another case, Gatto and other defendants allegedly agreed to make payments of up to $150,000 from Adidas to convince the player to join another team sponsored by the apparel company, according to filings. The university is not named, but based on the information provided, it’s likely the University of Miami, which entered into a 12-year partnership with Adidas in 2015. "Today, we became aware that federal investigators arrested an Adidas employee," an Adidas spokesperson said in an email to Business Insider. "We are learning more about the situation. We're unaware of any misconduct and will fully cooperate with authorities to understand more." Other defendants include Jonathan Brad Augustine, president of nonprofit The League Initiative; Merl Code, the head of Nike’s Elite Youth Basketball League as of 2013; and Christian Dawkins, a former sports agent who was reportedly fired in May for charging $42,000 in Uber rides on an NBA player’s credit card. Gatto and other defendants reportedly used apparent payments to the nonprofits as a way to conceal bribes paid to players and their families. usc arizona basketball USA Today Sports / Reuters The coaches named as defendants in the cases include Anthony “Tony” Bland, associate head coach at University of Southern California and former assistant coach at San Diego State; Chuck Connors Person, associate head coach at Auburn University; Lamont Evans, associate head coach and recruiting coordinator for Oklahoma State University’s basketball team and former South Carolina assistant coach; and Emmanuel Richardson, an assistant coach for University of Arizona. The multi-million dollar battle for top-tier college basketball teams is hard fought amongst sportswear giants. The visibility of being worn by a certain team or high-profile player is a valuable marketing opportunity for apparel companies, despite the fact that NCAA players cannot be paid to endorse brands. In the 2016 NCAA men's basketball tournament, Nike was the clear leader, providing uniforms for 41 entrants, the Baltimore Sun reported. Adidas provided outfits for 14 teams, Under Armour outfitted 10 teams, and Russell Athletic outfitted three. Under Armour has made major investments in college basketball in recent years. In 2016, the company made a $280 million agreement to replace Adidas as the UCLA men's basketball team's shoe and apparel sponsor for the next 15 years. Under Armour has also cut deals in recent deals with teams including Notre Dame, Auburn, and Wisconsin.

“For these men, bribing coaches was a business investment,” Joon H.Kim, the acting United States attorney for the Southern District of New York, said while announcing federal bribery, fraud and other corruption charges.“They knew corrupt coaches, in return for bribes, would pressure the players to use their services.They also knew that if and when those young players turned pro, that would mean big bucks for them.”This vision of what Mr.Kim called “the dark underbelly of college basketball” led to the arrests of nearly a dozen people, including four Division I assistant coaches and the global marketing director for Adidas basketball.Mr.Kim said the investigation was continuing, and the disclosures made on Tuesday seemed to promise further revelations of wrongdoing that could upend one of the country’s most popular sports, whose annual tournament provides the N.C.A.A.with the vast majority of its income.Across three complaints, two broad schemes were alleged.One involved bribing four assistant coaches — at Arizona, Auburn, Oklahoma State and Southern California, all programs in the so-called Power 5 conferences of college sports — to persuade players to send business to certain financial advisers once they turned professional.The other involved efforts to secretly funnel money from Adidas to three players and their families in exchange for the players’ commitments to play at two Adidas-sponsored college programs and to later sign sponsorship deals with the company once they turned pro.The latter complaint said a senior Adidas executive, Jim Gatto, was in on an agreement to pay about $100,000 to the family of “Player-10,” a heavily recruited high school standout, to steer him to a particular college.While neither the player nor the university was named, descriptions of the institution matched the University of Louisville, which this summer signed a 10-year, $160 million apparel contract with Adidas.Louisville’s men’s basketball program is currently on N.C.A.A.probation over a scandal in which prostitutes were used to entice recruits in on-campus housing (the university is appealing those penalties, which were announced in June).Adidas said in a statement: “Today, we became aware that federal investigators arrested an Adidas employee.We are learning more about the situation.We’re unaware of any misconduct and will fully cooperate with authorities to understand more.”Louisville’s interim president, Gregory C.Postel, confirmed his university’s involvement in the investigation.“While we are just learning about this information,” Mr.Postel said in a statement, “this is a serious concern that goes to the heart of our athletic department and the university.”He added that Louisville was “committed to ethical behavior and adherence to N.C.A.A.rules.”Payments were discussed for other players’ families as well, the complaint says, including one who had not yet begun his junior year of high school and another who was to receive $150,000 to enroll at a college whose description matches the University of Miami, another Adidas-sponsored college.Miami said in a statement that it, too, would cooperate with investigators if asked.The coach of an Adidas-sponsored grass-roots team in Florida — a pre-college squad outside of the high school structure — was among those charged.In the first scheme, one complaint charged that Chuck Person, the associate head coach at Auburn, abused his coaching position to solicit and obtain bribes from a financial adviser and business manager for professional athletes.In return, he agreed to direct certain players from his program to the adviser when the players entered the N.B.A.Mr.Person accepted a total of $91,500 in the case, the complaint said, and is accused of passing on about $18,500 to the families of two athletes.Mr.Kim emphasized the trust that young players had put in their coaches and noted that Mr.Person had boasted of one player: “He listens to one person — that is me.”The other complaint charged the other three assistant coaches with solicitation of bribery for accepting payments to steer players.The coaches named are Lamont Evans, an assistant at Oklahoma State and a former assistant at South Carolina; Emanuel Richardson, an assistant at Arizona; and Tony Bland, an assistant at U.S.C.All three, and Mr.Person, have been suspended, their programs announced Tuesday in separate statements.The N.C.A.A.president, Mark Emmert, also was caught off guard by Tuesday morning’s announcement but pledged

On Tuesday, US authorities announced fraud charges against ten people associated with some of the country's top college basketball programs, including four coaches and an Adidas AG executive, as the result of a two-year corruption probe. According to prosecutors, the probe revealed two related schemes, including one in which apparel executives, financial advisers and others bribed college coaches to steer players to them, and a second in which players were allegedly offered bribes to enroll at schools sponsored by Adidas. Prosecutors claim that the charges reflect what they call the “criminal influence of money” on National Collegiate Athletic Association basketball. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/Fj9Jnw6vQBo/u-s-charges-ncaa-basketball-coaches-with-bribery-fraud-idUSKCN1C11VW http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Description: China investigates GSK executives for bribery, tax violations. Story: Some senior executives from multinational pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) are being investigated for suspected bribery and tax-related violations, Chinese police said Thursday. The police statement describes their suspected offenses as "serious economic crimes". The suspects allegedly offered large amounts of bribes to government officials, medical industry associations and foundations, hospitals and doctors. Their aim was to expand the company's market and raise the price of its medicines. GSK is also suspected of being involved in tax-related crimes, including illegal cashing by falsely issuing exclusive value-added tax invoices and colluding with travel agencies to finance illegal acts. It is believed that the offenses had been occurring for some time, involving a large number of people and a significant amount of money. The police statement says some travel agency employees are also being held as suspects and interrogated by police. The police say they have obtained sufficient evidence and that the suspects have already confessed to the offenses.

The FBI arrested 10 people on charges of fraud and corruption in men's college basketball on Tuesday. The Department of Justice announced Tuesday that assistant coaches at Arizona, Auburn, USC, and Oklahoma State had been arrested along with managers, financial advisers, and representatives of the international sportswear company Adidas. Jim Gatto, the director of global sports marketing for basketball at Adidas, was among the defendants. Gatto is accused of conspiring with coaches to pay high-school athletes to play at universities sponsored by Adidas (referred to as "Company 1" in the case). The investigation, which had been in progress since 2015, was led by the FBI and the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York. Three separate complaints have been filed. Gatto and four other defendants have been charged with "making and concealing bribe payments" to high-school student athletes and/or their families. In one instance, Gatto and the other defendants are accused of funneling $100,000 to the family of a high-school basketball player to persuade the player to sign with a "public research university" in Kentucky. An undercover agent investigating the case said Gatto told other defendants that the payment was "on the books" at Adidas but "not on the books for what it's actually for." The complaint doesn't name the university, but, based on details provided, it is most likely Louisville, which signed a $160 million sponsorship deal with Adidas in August. In another case, Gatto and the other defendants are accused of agreeing to make payments of up to $150,000 from Adidas to persuade a player to join another team sponsored by the apparel company, according to filings. The university is not named but, based on the information provided, is most likely Miami, which entered a 12-year partnership with Adidas in 2015. "Today, we became aware that federal investigators arrested an Adidas employee," an Adidas representative told Business Insider in an email. "We are learning more about the situation. We're unaware of any misconduct and will fully cooperate with authorities to understand more." Other defendants include Jonathan Brad Augustine, the president of the nonprofit The League Initiative; Merl Code, the head of Nike's Elite Youth Basketball League as of 2013; and Christian Dawkins, a former sports agent who was reportedly fired in May after being found to have charged $42,000 in Uber rides on an NBA player's credit card. Gatto and other defendants are accused of using apparent payments to the nonprofits as a way to conceal bribes paid to players and their families. The assistant coaches named as defendants in the cases are Anthony "Tony" Bland of USC, Chuck Connors Person of Auburn, Lamont Evans of Oklahoma State, and Emmanuel Richardson of Arizona. The coaches allegedly took bribes from financial advisors and business managers in exchange for pressuring student athletes to hire the individuals. The multimillion-dollar battle for top-tier college basketball teams is hard fought among sportswear giants. The visibility of high-profile teams and players is a valuable marketing opportunity for apparel companies, even though NCAA players themselves cannot be paid to endorse brands. The Baltimore Sun last year reported that Nike was the clear leader in the 2016 NCAA men's basketball tournament, providing uniforms for 41 entrants. Adidas provided outfits for 14 teams, Under Armour outfitted 10 teams, and Russell Athletic outfitted three.

A former senior employee of a major bank has been arrested and charged with bribery as part of an ongoing investigation by the Fraud & Cybercrime Squad and officers from the United StatesFederal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Early this year (2015), police were contacted by a major bank after internal investigators uncovered some suspicious payments that had been deposited into the bank accounts of two of the bank’s senior IT staff, both Sydney-based US nationals. The matter was referred to detectives from the Fraud & Cybercrime Squad’s Corporate Corruption Unit, who formed Strike Force Drawl to investigate the case. Yesterday (Tuesday 17 March 2015), detectives attended a residential unit in Surry Hills, where they arrested a 61-year-old man. He was taken to the Sydney Police Centre and charged with two counts of bribery, before being refused bail to appear before Central Local Court today (Wednesday 18 March 2015). In court, detectives will allege that two of the bank’s (now former) employees were involved in a corrupt relationship with a now publicly-listed overseas technology provider. Police will contend that the managers granted the US-headquartered IT company a lucrative contract without putting it to public tender. In exchange, the managers allegedly received payment. To date, more than US$1.5 million in suspected corrupt payments have been frozen by officers from the Fraud & Cybercrime Squad. The investigation by Strike Force Drawl continues, with police particularly keen to speak to another one of the bank’s former senior IT managers, who is currently overseas. Strike Force Drawl detectives have engaged officers from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to assist with their inquiries. The Commander of the Fraud & Cybercrime Squad, Detective Superintendent Arthur Katsogiannis, commended his detectives for an outstanding job. “The officers within the Corporate Corruption Unit are relentless in the work they undertake and consistently deliver first-class investigations,” Detective Superintendent Katsogiannis said. “I’d also like to publicly commend the staff and investigators at the bank, who have provided invaluable insight and support to detectives working this case.”
