The Tokyo Metropolitan Government charges about 470 million yen to business operators and employees at "Water purification plant rigging" December 10 5:16
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has revealed that it has charged approximately 470 million yen, including penalty and damage compensation, to businesses and employees involved in the rigging over the work ordered by the Metropolitan Waterworks Bureau.
In the rigging over the operation and management work of the water purification plant ordered by the Tokyo Metropolitan Waterworks Bureau, the Fair Trade Commission said in July that the Governor Koike in Tokyo would ask for measures to prevent recurrence based on the government-made collusion prevention law. The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has taken disciplinary action, such as suspension, for the staff of the Waterworks Bureau to leak the planned price to the business operator and leak information.
In response to this, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government announced a total penalty of over 310 million yen for the two companies involved in the collusion on the 9th. We have revealed that we have requested damages of more than 150 million yen.
The total amount of invoices is about 470 million yen, and according to the capital, the business side is willing to pay.
“Tsukishima Techno-Maintenance Service”, which was asked for a penalty, commented that “I decided to accept the penalty claim” and “Ishigaki Maintenance” said “I accepted the claim”.
In addition, “Mizuing”, who was asked for compensation for damages as he actually gained profits, said that he would “refrain from commenting” on NHK coverage.
