The whistleblower behind serious bribery allegations against Rolls Royce has claimed he felt depressed and cheated by the company as a result of his actions, according to The Daily Telegraph
. Dick Taylor, who worked twice in Indonesia as Rolls' technical liaison manger, was told he was at risk of dismissal following his allegation that a manager in the country was misusing a company expense account. This threat prompted Taylor to make further allegations that the company paid a $20 million bribe and gave a blue Rolls Royce car to Tommy Suharto, the son of Indonesia's former dictator. The bribe was allegedly intended to ensure that Garuda - the Indonesian airline - purchased Rolls' Trent 700 engines for planes it was buying. Rolls is currently being investigated by the Serious Fraud Office over alleged malpractice in Indonesia and China.
