Fujitsu is being sued for defamation by a Japanese investment company which claims that Fujitsu accused it of having links to organised crime, according to a Reuters report.
Two financial advisors and Tokyo's arm of Sandringham Private Value have filed a £2.2m lawsuit and are seeking a public apology.
The lawsuit is one of two legal actions involving Fujitsu and its ex-president Kuniaki Nozoe, who has alleged that Fujitsu named the two financial advisors and Sandringham Private Value as being linked to organised crime.
Fujitsu has not publicly identified the fund associated with Sandringham Private Value, and the bankers have denied any criminal connections.
Nozoe was forced out by Fujitsu in September 2009 because of his ties with Sandringham. He was asked not to associate with the company but maintained his relationship against the will of Fujitsu.
Nozoe is already tied up in another legal wrangle with Fujitsu, and is due to launch a shareholders' suit against Fujitsu's senior executives.
Fujitsu were contacted but had yet to respond at the time of writing.
