BEIJING: Michael Kwan, the former chief operating officer of Lucent Technologies Inc's China unit who was sacked in connection with potential violations of a US anti-corruption law, has denied involvement in bribery.
In an interview with Beijing Times, Kwan, one of four executives fired by the US telecommunications equipment maker earlier this week, said he was puzzled by Lucent's decision.
“I can promise that I have not engaged in any bribery, but I have no idea about others,” Kwan said in a telephone interview with the paper.
“I will find an opportunity to formally clarify the situation to the outside world, because it has greatly damaged my reputation and credibility, and the decision by (Lucent) headquarters was not a responsible one,” he said. – AFX-Asia
