Prosecutors file official charges in Olympus fiasco

with one comment

On Wednesday, prosecutors in Japan filed official charges against six individuals for their role in the accounting scandal at Olympus.  They also filed charges against Olympus.

The six charged include the ex-chairman, former executive vice president, former corporate auditor and three outside bankers.

I previously mentioned the arrests.

Two articles discussing the filing of charges:

One of the individuals arrested wasn’t charged. The WSJ article says the national securities commission concluded that outside advisor wasn’t as heavily involved.
