Foxconn employees arrested for leaking Apple iPad 2 specs
DigiTimes has sourced an article from sznews.com today declaring that three Foxconn employees have been arrested in Shenzhen, China for leaking the design specs of the iPad 2 to third-party case manufacturers ahead of the device’s launch earlier this year.
The three former employees were allegedly arrested in December of last year and were charged in March for the leaks.
Foxconn apparently grew suspicious of its employees after worryingly accurate third-party iPad 2 cases began appearing on the market; the firm then asked local authorities to investigate.
The three should think themselves lucky that they got away with just being arrested, after all suicides are disturbingly frequent at the plant and would be easy for 3 more deaths to just blend right in at the plant, which has an appalling record for human rights.
