Fujitsu resignation dispute

Fujitsu, Japan's largest IT services firm, has revealed it dismissed adviser Kuniaki Nozoe amid a dispute over the circumstances that led to his abrupt resignation as president last year. Fujitsu also said in a statement that the main reason for Nozoe stepping down as president in September was not illness, as was stated at the time, but his association with a firm whose group was said to have an “unfavourable reputation”. Fujitsu's statement was prompted by Nozoe's sending of a letter seeking a nullification of his resignation on the grounds that it was made under false pretences.
