Japan’s Megabuilders Charged With Bid Rigging

Prosecutors in Japan pressed charges on March 23 against four of Japan’s biggest construction companies for allegedly rigging bids for stations being built for an $80-billion maglev train line connecting Tokyo and Nagoya, in central Japan.

Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Minister Keiichi Ishii, speaking at a news conference after the arrests, said he will consider excluding the firms from the bidding process for public construction projects funded by the ministry.
