Tokyo police to probe leak of Toshiba chip technology: paper


Tokyo police will probe a suspected leak of Toshiba Corp technology to a South Korean company that relates to the top Japanese chipmakers flagship memory chips, the Yomiuri newspaper reported on Thursday. The paper also said police had obtained a warrant for the arrest of a former engineer at a Toshiba-affiliated chipmaker who was suspected of improperly providing technical data to SK Hynix Inc. A Toshiba spokesman said the company could not comment on the matter while it is the subject of a police investigation. Tokyo police declined to comment. This would mark Japans first criminal investigation into a leak of advanced technology from the IT sector overseas, the paper said.
