Former Nova president admits to nonpayments of salaries

Former Nova Corp. President Nozomu Sahashi admitted the language school chain withheld wages from thousands of employees, saying the now-defunct company could not raise sufficient funds, Osaka Labor Bureau sources said Friday.

The bureau interviewed Sahashi on suspicion of violating the Labor Standards Law and may seek criminal charges after questioning Nova’s current management team.
