Fines Sought for Suzuki Motor over Inspection Scandal

Fines Sought for Suzuki Motor over Inspection Scandal

   Tokyo, June 7 (Jiji Press)--Japan's transport ministry asked a district court on Friday to impose fines on Suzuki Motor Corp. <7269> based on the road trucking vehicle law over its automobile inspection scandal.
   Shizuoka District Court was asked to fine the automaker, with the number of vehicles subject to the penalty standing at 655. With the maximum amount of fine under the law set at 300,000 yen per vehicle, the penalty on Suzuki would total up to 196.5 million yen, the largest on record under the law.
   Over vehicle inspection scandals, the ministry asked district courts last December to fine Nissan Motor Co. <7201> and Subaru Corp. <7270>.
   The ministry decided to place Suzuki under strict monitoring for the time being and instructed the company to report progress in the implementation of preventive measures on a quarterly basis.
   Transport minister Keiichi Ishii summoned Suzuki President Toshihiro Suzuki and handed documents detailing the ministry's measures against the firm.
