    Arrested on suspicion of receiving kickbacks from the suppliers of iPhone parts, nearly a dozen (if not more) Foxconn executives have been jailed as of Wednesday.

    The total number of "senior managers" taken into custody is unclear, but the possibility exists that more arrests could be made in this case as time passes and new details come to light.

    Chinese news site Tencent Technology notes that Deng Zhixian, director general for Foxconn's committee of surface mount technology, is one of the alleged masterminds of the underlying scheme.

    Prosecutors allege that companies that wanted to qualify as iPhone component suppliers had to pay the managers kickbacks and then further bribe them to make sure their orders went through.
    The scandal reportedly broke wide open after suppliers started complaining directly to Foxconn, which began an internal investigation that led to the recent rash of arrests.

    Ha! Why would our government do anything when the Elite(large corporate owners) run our government? They cannot smack the hand that is feeding them, while taking the crumbs off of our plates. Funny how that works out. Business as usual.

    It was a joke... was trying to see how long before people caught on. Come on "Hubble MICROscope", "budget cuts", NSA has no budget cuts that's all NASA.
