Guess who gets Comsn’s care businesses? September 13, 2007Posted by fukumimi in crime, Economy & Business, Japan, Society.
A previous post relating to Comsn’s divestiture of its care businesses.
Comsn has announced their plans for divesting their care businesses.
The residential home business goes to Nichii Gakkan.
The homebound care businesses are to be divested on a prefecture by prefecture basis (PR). Japan Care Service gets 13 prefectures, Nichii gets 5. (Various others make up the balance)
Why do I mention Nichii and JCS? Because they were both also implicated by the Tokyo metropolitan government for illegal practices.
I guess Comsn/GWG’s statement regarding their selection of buyers for the businesses – specifically that part about selecting buyers who can show that they are lawabiding corporate citizens with solid compliance trackrecords – has gone out the window.
As I had predicted, the MHLW seems to be spinning this as a Comsn problem, they announced that the amount Comsn has been billing illegally now stands at nearly JPY1.5B. No mention of other companies in the report, though.
I guess they have managed to do their job and make everyone forget that it isn’t just a Comsn problem. The fact that the mainstream media is willing to let this one go unnoticed seems to be par for the course. It still makes me sick, though.
