Accountants face charges in Kanebo case

Date Class
11th Sep 2005 Fraud Investigation
Prosecutors are set to seek criminal charges against several certified public accountants at a Japan unit of the PricewaterhouseCoopers group, suspecting that they collaborated with executives at Kanebo Ltd in an accounting fraud that has humbled what was once a premier cosmetics and textile company, investigative sources said Saturday.

The sources said the accountants at Tokyo-based ChuoAoyama PricewaterhouseCoopers worked together with two executives in producing consolidated financial statements that concealed 81.9 billion yen in capital deficit in fiscal 2001 and 80.6 billion yen in capital deficit in the following year.
