The former chief financial officer of Livedoor, the iconic Japanese internet
company, has admitted to being involved in a shares and accounting scam that
shock the country’s financial markets.
In the first hearing of his trial in Tokyo, Ryoji Miyauchi admitted to
manipulating the company’s accounts.
‘I did not know it was a bad thing to do, but I cannot exempt myself from
responsibility,’ he said.
Three other ex-Livedoor executives also pleaded guilty to manipulating
Livedoor shares were delisted last month.
