As a result, today we used the so-called "provision of information about an incident" format to give these information about this matter background information to the 2nd Investigation Division of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department.
We are therefore announcing that this incident has become police judgment whether or not there are case characteristics and we are no longer associated with this matter.
The information that was held by Mr. "N" includes a large volume of documents such as contracts, meeting minutes of our Company which violate the company's internal rule as well as disguised documents, that were prepared by Mr. "N" with absolutely no relationship with his duties at the company and that were not passed on to the associated departments and decision-making departments. In addition, these documents include files that are almost identical to recent news reported by large media companies. Further investigations and analysis will be needed due to the large number of highly unusual and suspicious aspects of this matter.
In addition, there was an article in today's Asahi Shimbun indicating the existence of an internal document titled "Resolution of the Board of Directors" that cannot exist under our management system. Asahi Shimbun will not show us these documents. We also want to receive these documents so that we can check their veracity. But this is also impossible. Consequently, as long as Asahi Shimbun refuses to show us these alleged internal documents, we have no alternative other than having serious doubts about the reasons and intent of Asahi Shimbun concerning this news report.
With regard to the results of these investigations, we plan to make announcements in a timely and proper manner as information becomes available.
