They allege that food broker Randall Rahal, whose reported bribes and kickbacks on Salyer’s behalf are a crucial part of the incriminating evidence against Salyer, had an established history of bribes in the industry long before he began his relationship with SK Foods.

Internet fashion site set to confirm appointment of former Marks & Spencer fashion boss
Marks & Spencer’s former fashion boss Kate Bostock is to join online rival Asos – days after leaving the struggling high street retailer. Her appointment to a senior executive role at the fast growing Asos is due to be confirmed on Wednesday.
Bostock was one of the most powerful women in UK retail at M&S, overseeing all departments except food.
She has been linked with Asos for months, and she will bring useful big business experience to the internet fashion site which has become a hugely popular destination for younger shoppers and prospered through the downturn.
Prior to joining M&S in 2004 Bostock was product director for Asda’s George label and before that ran the childrenswear division of Next.
Her departure from M&S was announced in July when the company unveiled one of its worst trading performances in the past decade, with quarterly sales of general merchandise – Bostock’s fashion and homewares departments – down nearly 7%. At the time the retailer’s chief executive Marc Bolland – with whom Bostock is said to have had a strained relationship – said he was “taking the necessary steps” to improve the performance of fashion and home.
Last year Bostock earned £944,000 at M&S – down on previous years when she had received controversial retention bonuses designed to keep her in the business.
Kayak (KYAK +2.7%) rallied today after CEO Steve Hafner declared on CNBC (video) that Google (GOOG) isn’t a threat to the travel search engine. “Google has had their flight search and hotel finder out in the market for two years … it’s an inferior product,” Hafner asserts. Kayak and Google have a complex relationship: about a tenth of Kayak’s traffic comes from Google queries, and the company relies on data from Google’s ITA Software unit. Kayak opposed Google’s purchase of ITA last year. Post your comment!
