TOKYO (Jiji Press) — Japan’s Fair Trade Commission on Tuesday conducted on-site inspections of seven facilities linked to paper distributor Japan Pulp and Paper Co. and three other companies over suspected bid-rigging, Jiji Press has learned.

The four companies underwent the inspections for alleged antimonopoly law violations, as they are suspected of rigging bids for contracts with the National Printing Bureau for the supply of paper for the government’s official gazettes.
