Kansai Elec Execs Took Money from Nuclear Biz Contractors

Kansai Elec Execs Took Money from Nuclear Biz Contractors

   Osaka, Oct. 4 (Jiji Press)--In an unfolding money scandal, Kansai Electric Power Co. <9503> executives received money directly from local contractors for its Takahama nuclear plant in Fukui Prefecture, it has been learned.
   The company said last week that 20 executives were given 320 million yen's worth of money and goods in total by a former deputy mayor of the nuclear plant's host town of Takahama.
   Of the total, 3.9 million yen was actually handed by two contractors to three of the 20--former Executive Vice President Hideki Toyomatsu and Managing Executive Officers Shigeki Otsuka and Satoshi Suzuki--according to Kansai Electric officials.
   An inspection by local tax authorities found that one of the contractors, Yoshida Kaihatsu, paid about 300 million yen in the name of commissions to the former deputy mayor, Eiji Moriyama, who died in March.
   According to an investigation report released by Kansai Electric on Wednesday, contractor officials sometimes attended meetings between Moriyama and Kansai Electric executives.
