They are seeking damages after Toshiba’s share price tanked some 40% in the wake of the revelations two years ago that top executives had pressured underlings to cover up weak results after the 2008 global financial crisis.

Best known for televisions and electronics, Toshiba’s vast business was dented by the worldwide crisis while the 2011 Fukushima disaster squashed demand for atomic power at home in a big blow to the firm’s key nuclear division.

Top executives complained of “shameful results” that could not be made public, and a company hired panel in 2015 found they masterminded a years-long scheme to hide the poor earnings.

It sparked the resignation of Toshiba’s president and a string of other top executives.
