Japan's first plea deal spares plant builder in Thai bribery case

Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems avoids charges by helping investigate employee

Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems will avoid indictment but will have to explain why the deal was necessary.

TOKYO -- Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems has struck a plea bargain in a bribery case involving a plant construction project in Thailand, the first such deal since Japan introduced the system this June.

Prosecutors will forgo charges against the plant builder in exchange for its cooperation with the investigation, which targets an employee who allegedly bribed a local civil servant.
