Nissan Top Officials to Return Salaries over Inspection Scandal

TOKYO Ė Nissanís top officials will return a part of their salaries to assume responsibility over an inspection scandal that had led to the recall of more than a million cars, company CEO Hiroto Saikawa announced Friday at a press conference at Nissanís headquarters in Yokohama (south of Tokyo).

Saikawa also presented the conclusions of an internal investigation into the scandal that involved irregularities in final safety inspections of cars.

Saikawa admitted safety inspections of vehicles were conducted by unqualified technicians for at least 30 years in the companyís plants and attributed the oversight to a lack of trained technicians.

He said the heads of the plants and the companyís top management would assume responsibility for it and return their salaries from October this year until March 2018, when the current fiscal year ends.

After the scandal came to light in September, the company had recalled 1.2 million vehicles in Japan and suspended production in the country for nearly three weeks, which caused around 50 percent fall in domestic sales of the company in October.
