Coca-Cola Amatil 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 Australia-based food and beverage group - the parent company of processed food business SPC Ardmona - has told our sister site just-drinks.com it is "providing its complete co-operation and support to the police".

An employee has reportedly been arrested for money laundering and receiving a 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 Coca-Cola Amatil's Macquarie Park offices in Sydney

According to the publication, Coca-Cola Amatil informed police last year 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 A$504,900 (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.
