TOKYO (Reuters) - Kobe Steel Ltd 5406.T said on Friday it had found a new case of data fabrication, at a subsidiary that cuts and processes steel plate.
The company also said it had found a case of employees not reporting data falsification to a company investigation in its aluminum and copper businesses.
Kobe Steel said it planned to set up a panel of outsiders to look into its problems, in addition to its existing in-house panel.
