This month, there have been two notable Compendium updates:
- Former executives of Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Inc. admitted to bribing a senior official at the Ministry of Transport in Thailand in exchange for favorable treatment in unloading cargo in connection with a local power plant project. A whistleblower brought the scheme to light and Mitsubishi reported it to the Tokyo District Public Prosecutor’s Office. In Japan’s first plea bargain deal, Mitsubishi was not indicted in exchange for its cooperation with the investigations and trial.
- France is formally investigating Tsunekazu Takeda, Japan’s Olympic Committee President, for suspected corruption in connection with Japan’s winning 2020 Olympic Games bid.
