Is The CIO The Future Steward ? UFJ Holdings, one of Japan’s four biggest banks, has admitted it engaged in forgery and obstruction to impede investigations into its conduct. The bank has made the admissions during an inquiry by the government regulator, the Financial Services Agency, into the bank’s operations and its losses of $19.6 billion over the past three years. The FSA had earlier accused the bank of illegal activities blocking its inspectors. The admission, following a “third party” investigation commissioned by the bank, found that the company had concealed documents and data, given false evidence, destroyed documents, and forged statements and minutes of meetings during inspections. The bank said the actions were “systematic” in nature and involved the highest levels of the company’s personnel.A UFJ statement said that as result of the findings, it would undergo a “reconstruction” of its “corporate governance framework”.
