Joseph Lau, McDonald's managing director in Hong Kong, allegedly accepted kickbacks during 2005-2007 from a company seeking to supply corn to the fast food chain in Hong Kong. According to the Independent Commission Against Corruption, Mr. Lau received about 10% commission on the corn sales. Mr. Lau, released on bail, has been suspended by McDonald's without pay. --posted by Christopher Alesevich
