Intel offices raided, under investigation

— 11:11 PM on April 8, 2004

Reliable reporter morpheus777 pased along a note to us that officials from Japan's fair trade watchdog raided Intel's Japanese office in an investigation of unfair business practices. The country's Fair Trade Commission said that Intel's Japan unit is suspected of attempting to keep its competitors from supplying parts to computer manufacturers.

The Japanese FTC also showed up at AMD's office, but Shun Yoshizawa, that company's director of corporate marketing, did not describe it as a raid, and said that officials simply asked a few questions. He went on to say the commission suspects Intel of an antitrust violation, but that is all he knows.
