3 Japan defense officials charged

TOKYO, Jan. 31 (UPI) -- Three officials at Japan's Defense Facilities Administration Agency have been charged with orchestrating a bid-rigging plot.

Investigators say that Takayoshi Kawano and two colleagues conspired with air-conditioning manufacturers to rig the bids for the installation of systems at a military hospital and another facility, Kyodo News Service reported.

Kawano was the chief of the construction department at the time of the alleged bid-rigging.

A number of officials from the agency have gone to work for air-conditioning makers.

Prosecutors said that several employees of the companies involved in the alleged conspiracy have admitted the bid-rigging.
