Coca-Cola Amatil (CCA) has said it is co-operating with Australian state police after an employee was arrested for money laundering and receiving a reported half-a-million Australian dollars in corrupt commissions.

The employee, described by the Australian Financial Review as "senior", was reportedly detained on Wednesday by fraud police at CCA's Macquarie Park offices in Sydney. "Coca Cola Amatil is providing its complete co-operation and support to the police," CCA told just-drinks today in a statement.

According to the AFR, CCA informed police last year that a 61-year-old employee was allegedly receiving commissions from a vehicle supplier for leasing its cars. The vehicle supplier reportedly deposited a total of AUD504,900 (US$394,000) into a bank account set up by the employee.

Police reportedly said they expect to make more arrests ahead of a court hearing on 14 April.

CCA is currently undergoing a cost-cutting programme that includes the axing of hundreds of jobs. This week, the company unveiled its new CFO as part of a management overhaul.
